  1. This sucks can't post a picture from a mobile phone
  2. I have had sucess with both leaf pullngs and pitcher pullings in straight distilled water. would post some pics but im not to sure on how to go about that. I am going to try this method with a twist and will let you all know the results.
  3. Whooo Hooo! Come on now praise the plant gods. Hopefully the Rhizome works well. Out of my Eden Black x Eden blackseeds I think I got aout 10 out of the 40 or more seeds to Germinate . Does this mean they could de readily be availble in the united states?
  4. Well I was very lucky to score some seeds from Stephen about 3 months ago. so far 6 out of the 40 or so have germinated. wish I knew a easy way to post pics. 5 out of the 6 I put in a 8"x8" exo terra terrarium next to my cold drafty kitchen window. have been germinating faster then the ones in my orchidarum. Could this be due to the lower tempertures? the one under the t-5 lighting is getting bigger faster then the ones under the exo terra light. will keep you all updated.

  6. thats excatly what mine look like.. cool no need to load a picture then
  7. going to need a good laminar flow hood also. I was going to go through fungi perfecti for that. just build the sides with 1/4" lexan. do you use a flow hood?
  8. Wow! thats pretty sweet then.. I hope to get something like that. As of now I have Hummer,s Giant,Big Boy,Germen Giant. and Eb x Eb. By the way what is your secert? I Plan to root feed with a real dilute orchid fertilizer through the roots When they start produing good sized pictures. Wow! the color is sweet what medium and agar do you use m.s. i want to do this also with some v.f.t.
  9. Well after about 2 months or more I have 5 ebxeb seeds germinated. looks great so far. Can ayone here tell me a easy way to do picutres. Is there a better way other then photobucket?
  10. I smell alot of b.s. in this post there is now way them eb seedlings grew that big in a year. if anyone else is with me feel it for me. unless all you feed yhem is super worms. I just looked today actually and I got 5 eb,s germinated so we shall see if they grow that fast.god bless if they do.
  11. I use bayer advanced for plants and flowers works great on orchids,bonsai,carnivorous too
  12. dam im wondering if i have to much peat in my soil.. I vae never seen so much course quartz sand in the medium before.
  13. Im wating for my eb sees to germinate as we speak! will let you all know the results as they come in.
  14. I was just as giddy when I got my first leaf pulling to grow.
  15. I know I FIN want one! i deffiantliy want one. I would say since you cant tell what medium it is growing in if it is a desert dewlling plant. Jungle and so on. what type pf soil is it in. it seems to have the glands for bugs. is this a new type of species that has yet to be discovred? Only time will tell
  16. Dam I Really hope the seeds I am getting will take off like that
  17. I have been both sucessiful in pitcher and leaf divisions. I use a Exo terra miniature terrarium that is 8" x 8" with a 2.0 reptile bulb. The medium is consisting of course quartz pool filter sand, peat moss, fine perlite, and small charcol. If I could figure out how to easily put pictures in the post I would do so. I do the pulling then dip it in root tone then insert in the medium, these tanks offer the perfect humidity,temperture, and air exchange. I currently have a leave pulling of german giant,hummers giant and big boy cultivars growing as we speak. I also add a little coat of Myco grow around the coating wich is beneficial bacteria and trichoderma fungi. it is availble through www.fungiperfecti.com Well I hope this helps you, I also just keep the medium evenly moist then wait till it gets just slightly dry. these plants are not swamp plants
  18. Well the green house has been up since the early spring. it works very well. I had to buy the aluminet shadecloth to keep the temps under control. also installed a mist king misting system. I totally love that. I fI could figure out how to putpictures on here I would.
  19. we had a few days that were close to 100 degrees. that did them in. but like I said they are making a nice rebound
  20. masdeviallia erinace,dracula lotax,pluerothallis groybi, stellis of hirtellia, I could go on and on..cause thats what I specialise in micro miniature orchid species,tolumnia selvestris elgato,etc...etc..
  21. I would personally put a saucer of beer about 2 inches deep next to the dendrobium. if nothing its a catapillar. if you see slugs the beer will deffiantly kill them.
  22. warmer temps would be my guess. I put out my hummer,big boy,vigoruous, and germen giant, this summer here in new york, they took a crap real fast. I have them in a south facing east to west window now under air conditioning. there is a hell of improvement in both growth and coluration. Real warm temps and cephalotus do not get along at all.
  23. Whoo hoo, just got my first picther from my big boy ceph to strike

  24. go to www.flytrapstore.com they have them for 12.95 usd
  25. Where I work we make these spa pads that hook together with little dog bone connectors. I made a figuration of around 8'x8'. What i did was filled them with great stuff insulation. Worked great for me. If interested you can view the spa pads at www.conferplastics.com. you can either use water, sand, to fill them also. but I used great stuff. I am not trying to sell our products just putting the idea out there.
