    Update: Sick? No ID, multifloral

    I want to thank everyone that responded and gave me advice for my multifloral no I.D. paphs. It has taken a long time, but I think I see improvement on two of them! Also, a picture of my deflasked pink complex Paphs growing in a makeshift community container.

    Sick? No ID, multifloral paphiopedilums

    Thank you Jens. Your observations are very much appreciated. I know it's silly, but I don't want to give them up. Maybe, if I correctly diagnose the circular reddish brown marks and send proof, they might offer a refund. That is what I'm going to try to do. I'll keep them away from other plants...

    Sick? No ID, multifloral paphiopedilums

    That's why I bought them. I was excited about being surprised by the blooms and the fact that they were grown in Florida. I plan to one day order a flask of long petaled multiflorals and raise them to sell, so I hope this will be a good first start for my learning experience. Oh wow! I did not...

    I have copper fungicide too, but I'm not sure if it will be too harsh or not.

    Thank you NYEric, I've never heard of that. I'll have to look it up. In the meantime, I sprayed them down with neem oil. I'm suspecting a fungal infection called cercospora.

    They came from a nursery in Melbourne, Florida. The listing stated they had too many of these paphs and wanted to make room for other things, I believe. They just messaged me back and stated- New message from: tropicalworld (2,041) It will disappear in lower humidities. I am not sure what it is...

    Thank you so much. I think I'll keep them in the garage for now. The humidity is way higher in there, I think 70% or more. I always keep a garage door open during the day but I'll make sure they are more in the darker shade for now

    Yeah, they do look pretty bad. All the roots on one were dead except one. The other's roots seemed firm but they were few. I paid 30 something a piece for them. I'm not sure if that is cheap or not for paphs. I've already contacted the seller with pictures. Hopefully they will reply tomorrow.

    Thanks Ray. You have given me hope when I had so very little, lol. I will try my best.

    Sick? No ID, multifloral paphiopedilums

    I just got these on eBay today. They do not look too great to me. I have never grown them before and have only just started growing orchids a year ago. Can anyone let me know if they are okay and if they aren't, what is wrong? There are three different species. The one with the patterned red...
