    Many years ago at my friends greenhouse, he had a Paph kolopakingii var topperi and it was huge with a leafspan of 6 feet across and the leaves were wide. BTW nice collection

    Paph. stonei

    It was having problems as the new leaves started getting fertilizer burn on the new leaf tips so I had to change it to bark, sphagnum moss and large perlite.

    Paph. stonei

    Yes it is. I totally agree with you on that. Last time I repotted it, it could easily be separated into 3 divisions.

    Paph. stonei

    Got this plant as a seedling in late 2007 and has flowered many times! About 5 years ago, I pruned the roots to fit in a smaller pot and it resented the repotting process. Got it to flower last year and now it is in flower again.

    Microscopic mites on paphs

    Got it at garage sale for cheap! It is a Bausch & Lomb StereoZoom 4 Microscope on Boom Stand and you can zoom in from 7 to 40x. Great for working on old mechanical watches or electronic circuits.

    Microscopic mites on paphs

    Maybe with a Stereo Zoom microscope that can view up to 40x and using something like this on this site: In the lab: Bausch and Lomb StereoZoom 4 with Phone Adapter | Details | I got myself a stereo zoom to view pest but have not gotten a Phone adapter yet!

    Sticky crispy dried out leaves?

    The media is too dry for Paphiopedilum as they need constant moisture in the media. Looks like the media you are using is more suited to epiphytes that need to dry out really quickly. I would use a smaller grade of bark and add sphagnum moss to the mix. Make sure you have at least 50% or more...
