fasinating group of native orchids., nowdays science has enabled us to grow them without miroabica fungi. in what nature would see as speeded up flowering. lets see you got your large yellow, small yellow, showy, and pink

with it in writing that they are lab cultivated and not dug from the wild- and assuming you know how to recreate their habatat. you too can grow lady slippers.

Alex, I am not sure why you post two nonfunctional links, unless you want to direct us to these sites for some obvious reasons?

Here's the right link for the Vermont Ladyslipper Company http://www.vtladyslipper.com/

Here's the Itasca one http://ladyslipperfarm.com/

Alex, better to copy and paste when posting a link, because any spelling error makes the link not work.

I know they can be purchased and they are not cheap !!

Personally I prefer to walk through the woods, paths and and observe them in their natural habitat. Works for us here in the NE. And I will always share pics. Smiling

I went through a period of buying many cyp hybrids and they came up for years but now are dwindling. My neighbor Peter hybridizes them. http://www.hillsidenursery.biz/
I moved some to a new garden this year. It will be interesting to see if they come up this spring.
