    Pitcher of the Month December 2022

    This (maxima x talangensis) x hamata BE-3777 is growing fast now that it is in the grow tent. Even in the South Carolina summer, it seemed slow. The peristome starts out a pale red, then turns a nice jet black. The teeth are a nice touch.

    Overgrown Orchid!

    It seems healthy enough. Generally when an orchid or just about any plant that doesn’t bloom, it’s due to lack of enough light. It would help if you had the species or hybrid name.

    Paphiopedilum Saint Swithin Inverness (rothschildianum x Philippinense)

    This is an orchid I’ve been growing for about 5 years. It’s a reliable bloomer. About a month or so ago I decided to divide it. At the time there was no indication of flower buds. As soon as I divided it both plants sent up spikes. Both spikes are going to have 4 flowers in bloom at the same...
