    Looking for hikes in SC/Charleston area (also I'm back/lurking)

    Gotcha. Yeah I only reluctantly got on FB to keep tabs on friends and it's been just as much of a PITA as I'd expected, LOL. ~Joe

    Looking for hikes in SC/Charleston area (also I'm back/lurking)

    I already hit Ozzy up on FB, good call though. How are we not connected on there? Sent you a friend request. ~Joe

    Looking for hikes in SC/Charleston area (also I'm back/lurking)

    Hi all. Some friends of mine are visiting the Charleston area with their toddler and they have some unstructured time in their itinerary. They enjoy hiking and other naturalist activities, but have never really seen CPs up close before - we're friends from school, so they've only seen my...

    Pinguicula in a Quahaug shell at 8 years

    Wow, very nice Zero! I also found Mexi Pings to be remarkably durable. Until mice ate mine. *sad trombone noise* Cheers, ~Joe

    No February POTM? Well I told Zu I was going to post this orchid

    Yeah I thought I saw one too at the beginning of the month, when I mentioned to Zu I was planning to post a pic. There was at least one submission up at that point. Strange. Thanks Andrew, I'm pretty fond of it myself. Lady slipper orchids are one of groups that first drew me to exotic plants...

    Osmocote, showing some promising results!

    You're feeding pitchers with Osmocote? Interesting. I've had success dosing with time-release pellets, but not sure I ever heard of anyone feeding with them. Guess it makes sense. Anybody know how it compares elementally to more conventional foods? ~Joe

    No February POTM? Well I told Zu I was going to post this orchid

    Huh, I dug around for a while and the closest I could find was January 2017 and February 2016 - no February 2017. What's done is done, no worries. I shared the pic and that was my main objective. :) ~Joe

    No February POTM? Well I told Zu I was going to post this orchid

    I double-checked and turns out this is not the seedgrown one Zu gave me, but another sent in the same trade - Paphiopedilum 'Michael Koopowitz'. ~Joe

    No February POTM? Well I told Zu I was going to post this orchid

    Zu sent me this great compact lady slipper over six years ago - IIRC, it's one she sprouted (maybe even crossed?) herself. Last year it finally bloomed for the first time. This is the second spike I've got from it now. Here's my glamour shot: And a few others that didn't quite make the cut...

    Wow, hats off Butch! Any idea when you will hear back on the submission? Cheers, ~Joe

    Tillandsia watering

    How dry is your grow area? My household humidity is in the 50%-60% range and I soak most of my Tillandsia about once every one to two months. Aside from that I spray them when I think about it, sometimes daily, sometimes weekly. I have seven or eight easy taxa (not sure which, got them from a...

    Non-Carnivorous Tepui Plants?

    I also second this - very interesting question. I wonder if we could find some ID keys for the region. ~Joe

    Paphiopedilum supersuk "Eureka" AM/AOS x Paph Raisin Pie "Hsinying") x Sib tips

    Nice - I've got that cross or the mother (long since lost the tag) but I've never got it to double bloom! If it's anything like mine, it'll be pretty easy to please. It's the first orchid I've got to bloom regularly that wasn't a Phalaenopsis. ~Joe

    Finally repotting after 5 years!

    I'm also getting back into the swing of things! One of the lady slippers you sent me back in the day started flowering as of last year. It's just started to unfurl it's first bloom of the year - I'll be entering it into February's pic contest. Cheers, ~Joe

    Hello again

    Unfortunately it's a chronic thing, but I'm getting it under control. Thank you though. :) ~Joe
