It's almost the final final for Kaichen here. The huge A. consanguineum
that I bought as A. zanlanscianense, died. The lower stem rotted away as
did the tuber. I cut off the stem and after two days there's no sign of
the tuber at all. So much for that. Interestingly, there are 5 A.
ringens, 1 A. ochraceum, and 2 A. tortuosum in the same bed and less than
2 feet away that are thriving and have been for years.
Both of the remaining Cypripedium have either gone dormant or died. So
there's currently not much to point to as a result of my order. Here's
the complete rundown:
ordered - usually 2 or 3 of each
Arisaema brevipes == dead
Arisaema fargesii == dead
Arisaema lingyunense == dead
Arisaema rhizomatum == dead
Arisaema rhombiforme == dead
Arisaema saxitile == Typhonium horsefeldii
A. zanlanscianense == A. consanguineum == died
Asarum magnificum == dead
Asarum maximum == dead
Asarum splendens == barely alive
Cypripedium flavum == one dormant ?
Cypripedium franchetii == dead
Cypripedium henryi == one alive, no bloom
Cypripedium macranthum == dead
Helleborus thibetanus == dead
Pleione formosana == dead
Pinellia cordata == dead
Not an outstanding success here. I'm sure glad some of you fared better.
