    Help with leucochilum.

    After 8 months focusing my growing on Paphiopedilum, I have my first problem. First I thought it was sun burning, now I see that it comes from inside. This plant has two new growings, the younger one looks fine. I think to cut the infected one and wait what happens. I really appreciate your...

    Paphiopedilum bellatulum

    Thank you for all your comments. You are so kind. And yes, I remember from cattleyas that 4N are bigger and vigorous, but because I don't have real plants to compare, just reading and studying the usual characteristics of the plant, I deduce that it is what is called "type". The comment was that...

    To stake or not to stake? Lowii spiking habit

    Hello from Mexico!

    I have a wenshanense since 2015. I was more into cattleyas and vandas, but since I moved to another city and to live in an apartment, I started growing more paphios since last summer. I'm so fascinated that now I have 29, mostly species. I share some pics, I don’t have the blooming merit (only...
