    Weird Winter!

    These are a couple of native terrestrials that I potted and plunged this fall. In early January, no doubt due to our crazy weather, I noticed growth in the pot containing Platanthera flava and P. ciliaris, so I moved it and the second pot, containing a Cypripedium acaule into my cold room about...

    Flowers in the Snow........ Almost.

    A pic of my naked jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum. Too bad this winter has been so mild until now, it's already done blooming for the year. And the flowers look so nice against the snow......

    Self Fertility Question

    I recently acquired a small specimen of Anacampserous 'Sunrise' which had previously bloomed and had a ripe capsule from which I got several seeds. Obviously I'm going to plant them, but if anyone has any experience with this plant or genus I'd be grateful if you could share. Thanks!

    Gloriosa superba 'Rothschildiana' and Noid Ginger Plant

    Due to a bumper crop of one, and the generosity of a friend on the other, I have more of both of these than I have space for. The Gloriosa is a summer grower and these should be stored cool and dry until spring. The ginger should be planted immediately. You'll receive several pieces of root...

    Some of the trees I'm processing were dead when I dropped them and are literally covered in lichens. Not much variety, but no lack of quantity! Some cool hollow logs covered in the stuff too.
