Thanks Mark. U.endresii is not very common and I'm still trying to nail down exactly what it it needs to thrive. I've gotten it to flower 2 years in a row now but the flowers are all wonky. Still missing something it would seem.

Wow! and that bog!
Do the bog orchids require any ferts or additional care? or do they grow just like the carnivores? I'm not too familiar with these plants.

The bog orchids grow in the same conditions as the carnivores and can usually be found growing right beside them in the wild. I have around 10 species of orchids growing in the same bogs as the cp's.

Where did you get the C. Tuberosis var albiflora?

All my Calopogon came to me as hitchhikers in pots of Sarracenia. I think the C.tuberosus var. albiflora was in with a Sarracenia leucophylla 'Titan' that I got some years ago from a vendor in the Mid Atlantic region.

Replace Bisquamata with subulata, at least Bisquamata flowers

Many people get Calopogon, Pogonia, Spiranthes and other orchid hitchhikers when buying potted Sarracenia and just throw them out assuming they're some kind of grass or weed. The key is to know what the immature and non blooming plants look like. I bought a S.leucophylla once from a vendor in the Northeast and the pot was absolutely loaded with juvenile Calopogon pallidus. I called the vendor and they had been throwing them away while repotting, not knowing what they were. Another grower also was also once given permission to take a few S.purpurea purpurea from a bog on a friends property. The clumps of plants were absolutely infested with Pogonia ophioglossoides and he had no clue.
It's always worth a closer look when buying potted Sarracenia and other plants from collections known to have bog orchids growing with the CP's.
