    Charlesworthii v. alba x self surprise

    Nights could be 40 but day temp can be 70-80 on a 1-2 day cool night. All my slippers seem to tolerate the 50’s for a very short time.

    Charlesworthii v. alba x self surprise

    By no means an expert in growing and cultivating. Family and friends would call me an expert in purchasing. I live in Florida, midwest coast and grow all my Paphs and Phrags outside year round on a screened-in lanai greeenhouse/pagoda. I only move Orchids inside if Hurricane winds or less than...

    Paph. Lady Isabel x gigantefolium

    Thank you. I purchased in low spike so can only take credit for its survival and blooming. I have used the pollen to cross to Lady Roth.....hoping for pink pouches and even more turned petals.....in my search for a flowering stonei-look-a-like that blooms consistently. Let’s see what happens in...

    Your view point of hp pro mix on phrags

    Great discussion. Can I ask, is HD Pro Mix a soil mix with perlite? Thanks!

    Old school rothschildianum

    I believe it is a beautiful flower and valuable to any collection. Original roths, similar to the wild species origin appearance, in my opinion is just as valuable as bigger, darker color, straighter petal newer forms. I would be first in line to add to my collection !

    Phrag. Eumelia Arias
