Can you grow Lady Slipper orchids?
I just searched and found a post that referred a lot to a fungus needed in the soil, does this make it unlikely to succeed if you purchase orchids and plant them? I think I have the right habitat - woods with a light stream (the source is runoff out of the brook running through my basement but that's something I don't like to think about ha ha)
I would love to try them, though I can't afford it now (the ones I saw online were $37 a plant) but maybe someday if it sounds like people have had good luck with them. I'm particularly interested in Cypripedium reginae. I remember finding these in the woods as a kid, and the babysitter I was with knew they were endangered in CT and we werent' allowed to pick them.
