I love Cypripedium! I just hope this next batch of C. acaule I am getting wil do good in my mix of peat/perlite/sand and a heavy layer of pine needles (partially decaying) I did a pH test for the mix and its about 5.0 pH. Anyways, enjoy the pictures of native Cyps I took today! Any info/expierence people have had with C. acaule or any Cyps is appreaciated! Please POST INFO if you have some.
