    Paphiopedilum micranthum fma album (What’s the deal?)

    Hey everyone. I have a question that may sound ignorant but here goes. P. micranthum is my all time favorite Paph. I have regular type and eburneum (my favorite). I would, as I know many would, love to have an album type. I understand that micranthum is very difficult to propagate from seed, but...

    Phrag Help!

    Yes. I think much of the damage was mechanical (shipping box looked like Fedex threw it off of a building, in fact the bloom stake was broken in half) and there were some sunburn spots. It looks like this damage and stress introduced rot however that would move up the leaf edges and then in. I...

    Ok everyone. Time for an update and additional questions. First, thank you to everyone that has responded. I really appreciate the assistance. I certainly want to save this plant but I am also learning a lot from this experience as it is my first with rot. Hopefully, it will make me a better...

    Phrag Help!

    This is a two growth plant and nearly all of the rot is on only one growth. I do not see any signs of a new growth started. I tapped the plant out and the roots look good but the mix has definitely broken down. I will need to repot. Would you recommend waiting for the plant to finish blooming to...

    Phragmipedium Millbrook

    Are you guys sitting your millbrooks in water? I’m a Paph parvi guy and new to Phrags. Sitting in water makes me nervous. Right now I have my millbrook in water and my humboldtii resting on stones free of the water. That the right thing to do? Thanks!

    Cooling Parvisepalum

    Hi everyone. I usually put out many of my Paphs in the fall to cool. Daytime temps are in the seventies but nighttime temps drop into the upper to sometimes mid 40sF. My question is this, if I have a plant that has already begun developing a spike sheath, am I better off leaving it inside where...

    General Questions (Parvisepalum)

    That is very helpful information! Thank you! I am currently keeping micranthum eburneum (my favorite species) and malipoense. Armeniacum is on my radar but I don't have one yet. My hybrids are fanaticum (favorite hybrid) and Norito Hasegawa. My Hasegawa currently has a nice spike so I am not...

    austin creek orchids ebay vendor (orchids4u)

    I second this. I have made three different purchases with Austin Creek and have been very happy each time! Their plants are always very healthy and large for their price point. One time my plant was held up by the USPS for ten days. It arrived in great shape and with a healthy spike due to...

    General Questions (Parvisepalum)

    Hey everyone! New guy to the forum! I have a couple of parvisepalum straight species and hybrids. The following questions are referring to Paphiopedilum in general but parvisepalum in particular. Do you recommend ceasing fertilizing completely when a plant is in spike? Do you cut back? Or do...
