    Orchid smuggler escapes u.s.

    I posted this usenet post from firstrays orchids in the hope others would look at their stand in favor of an importer of endangered CITES protected Phragmipediums which were wild collected. Firstrays has been supportive of them, claiming their innocence would be proven, from the start, and is...

    So how did every spend the 4th?

    I spent the 4th with my girlfriend, reading up on recently purchased orchids, walking the dog (and seeing an indigo bunting!) and eventually going to see farenheit 9/11. Has anyone else here seen that movie? It's kind of scary, especially the part about Saudi influence over president Bush. It...

    how to raise public awareness?

    I've been reading the thread on a national Sarracenia collection, and I feel this may warrant another thread. It seems like the general public knows very little about Sarracenia pitcher plants. Perhaps some methods for raising awareness could be used. It certainly would help to have a few more...

    orchids for mounting or putting in baskets?

    I'm just wondering what species of orchids would be good for putting in a hanging basket. I've never grown orchids this way, and my mom has recently seen some growing like this and decided to try it. Does anyone know which genera are good for this, or which species? Right now, she's considering...

    Documented salvage of cypripediums?

    http://www.wildorchidcompany.com/species_list.html I wonder how they can be getting so many "documented salvage" Cypripediums to offer for sale... Strange. Is there some kind of legal loophole, or something? I was under the impression salvaged orchids (endangered species) can never be sold by a...

    Nepenthes khasiana flowering

    My N. khasiana started flowering around a week ago - and as it turns out, it is a female. If anyone has pollen from an N. khasiana, or anything interesting it can be hyridized with, please let me know (I am willing to send half the seeds in return, of course). I will try and get batteries for...

    Utric seed germination

    I tried the spray method for germinating Utricularia lateriflora seeds, for about the past month. About a week ago I noticed some green. Turns out that I had no germination - but the flower stalk that was with the seeds has some tiny leaves all along it, and a couple of stolons!

    Infertile D. capensis?

    I am not sure what is wrong with my D. capensis. I got it at a garden center last summer, and it had a flower stalk, which hadn't formed any seeds. I assumed it was just because the plant wasn't healthy. Recently, it flowered, and produced normal looking seed pods, which I cut open only to...

    Wild collected orchids on the internet!

    Hi, I'm just wondering, does anyone know of laws regarding trading wild collected orchids? There is a person that has obviously wild collected seeds and plants on an exchange list on another forum (not here, but I think people may be able to guess which one...), I'm wondering if it is legal or...

    Ludisia discolor

    Well, my Ludisia discolor is about to flower. It's got 8 spikes coming up, and another one on each of the cuttings. I'll post pictures when the flowers start opening (a month away probably). BTW, has anyone tried growing orchid seeds (without using tissue culture)? I've heard Ludisia are some...

    D. cistiflora germination

    Well, I recieved a small amount of D. cistiflora seed about 5 months ago, and planted it in August, along with some peltata seeds. I was ready to give up on the cistiflora seeds two months ago, when 1 seedling came up died, and the peltata seeds germinated. Today I looked into the pot, and...

    Scarifying seeds

    I just got ahold of some Roridula Dentata seeds, and they require scarification to germinate. I'll probably try half with a cigarrette and a dome to trap the smoke and half with burning either grass or paper. Has anyone tried this for seeds and gotten decent germination?

    Deliberate misinfromation?

    I was reading a certain other website, which I will not name, and... a poster there, claiming to have experience growing nepenthes, is now telling new users that nepenthes have wet and dry seasons, and that they shouldn't be watered during the winter. Anyway, I think this falls way beyond an...
