  1. I have fresh seeds not from alata but from bahiensis . I have also fresh seeds from contrajerva have you others dorstenia? jeff
  2. it is a plant in a calcareous environment, so for me rather use a more mineral substrate, just moist substrate not too wet. right now at my house they are outside. the light of the sun is always one more, especially for this species which in the sun makes beautiful purple borders on the edge of their leaf
  3. I agree with ADA. all temperate species must stay outside all year round (no refrigerator needed),I would even say Mexican from May to October 'in situ' often hibernacula form in JULY - AUGUST . I think we should leave them outside here, even at the risk of restarting, but nevertheless bring them in if they have leaves when it freezes (this risks making them die)
  4. P.mariae P.vulgaris subsp anzalonei

  6. very interesting report, the environments do not seem the same as the Spanish stations ? jeff
  7. do you know what mexican specie it is ? hybrid ,taxon ? jeff
  8. once you return, watering must be drastically reduced or even removed for certain species. the problem is also the substrate, in the case of peat it must just be slightly wet, nothing more.
  9. magnifique grow you terrestrial orchids from australia ? jeff
  10. Bonjour actually in your country it is the spring ( summer in december-february), also for me, leave these seedlings out, especially cover them to prevent threshing of the substrate by the rain. longifolia is not a acid specie but a calcareous like a lot of temperate , then use a calcareous substrate for them . my substrate for these calcareous species (including mexican and some others) -cat litter with sometimes akadama (bonzaï substrate) 50% -pouzzolane 12.5% -calcareous sand 12.5% -river sand 12.5% -vermiculite 12.5% jeff
  11. Bonjour all 2 we need stratification for grandiflora a acid substrate like just blond peat for longifolia a calcareous substrate you can sow them right away or leave them at the bottom of the fridge to sow them in the spring warning our seasons are reversed for the new zealand it would be better to sow them away, fairly humid substrate and out all year round
