A pale form of Cypripedium pubescens in the greenhouse on a rainy day.

The first Cyps to flower here are two Taiwanese species:

Cypripedium formosanum






Cypripedium segawai -I struggle to grow this species in a pot and might let it loose into a sheltered bed.

Cypripedium parviflorum -a runty wee plant which was quite chlorotic when new growth started. It responded very well to repeat half-strength feeds with Chempak #2 (high nitrogen). Despite concern to the contrary it appears that Cypripedium species are not unduly sensitive to mineral fertiliser as long as the soil is flushed alternate watering.



Cypripedium planipetalum -?? I bought this as planipetalum but I think it might just be a dwarf form of pubescens.



Cypripedium plectrochilum -this dwarf grows in a pumice mix in a polystyrene vaccine box. It had more flowers last year and new growth this year looked a bit chlorotic but has since responded well to high nitrogen feeding.

Nice photos. Mine in pots are breaking ground and is a 15cm high now. I had the new ones trimmed by a slug so now a night walk with a killing tool is the normal drill.

My Cypripediums seem to be flowering so much later this year.
Lost the label yet again, funny I like the flowers when they are not completely open.

Four separate plants of Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens are doing fairly well this year. It is interesting to see the colour variation in the petals, between these plants (bought from the same source).
