    Peloric Paphiopedilum Arete

    I bought the flask from a grower in Malaysia back in 2011 as a primary hybrid between Paph. spicerianum x Paph. concolor (= Paph. Arete). Some seedlings looks crimped on their shoots and producing very unstable ugly flower. This photo below is the fifth clone blooming and has the worst mutation...

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    Some orchids really could adapt to it, so a a bit purplish or yellowish scorch shouldnt be a major problem thou., then u decide after..

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    Yeah i guess its hard to penetrate 4-5 cm thick of Dendrobium pseudobulbs. I've tried to inject the insecticide by needle and spuit with no luck :((

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    To be honest, I didnt spot many Paphs in the wild during exploration. Only Paph. javanicum, Paph. glaucophyllum, Paph. lowii, Paph. bullenianum var. celebesense, Paph. glanduliferum, Paph. primulinum and several others. Will post some pics later soon ;)

    Deformation in agroclimate differences

    Possible, They've been flowering normally every season or at least once in a year but i didnt documented their last two season flowers. They're not having growth degradation at all, but only less shoots with Paph. callosum, less roots with Paph. purpuratum and of course as we can see, lack of...

    Deformation in agroclimate differences

    These are three specimen from three different species with three different locality and habitat. All Barbata section. The photos on the top were taken recently under lowland condition, conventional cultivation controlled by heavy fogging (6 S - 106 E, min. temperature, night 20 C - max...

    Paph. (Shun-Fa Golden x Ice Castle)

    It took almost 4 months for the bud initiation. My growing area isnt really desirable for Paphs actually, and during the bud development we were having trans season here so it might caused some deformation. The second flower is initiating soon i guess, gonna post it here as soon as its bloomed ;)

    Paph. (Shun-Fa Golden x Ice Castle)

    I did already, but the pollen isnt vigour enough to pollinate others and the seedpod sheath was nested by mealy bugs, so im not really sure if the seeds are viable to germinate or not *crossedfingers

    Paph. (Shun-Fa Golden x Ice Castle)

    I bought the flask at 20th WOC in Singapore from Tokyo Orchid Nursery, and here's the first bloom, waiting for another 3 to develop. The shape is quite unusual and the pouch looks unbalance. Lack of spots and to be honest i dont really like the pale color.

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    Thanks for knowledge, i've been working with palm fruit production and breeding as well especially in Salacca spp.. We've been concerning for the palm weevil attack lately. Do you know if there's any specific nematodes for them? For the orchid weevil, Bacillus thuringiensis seems quite works...

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    Fortunately no, what i'm trying to say here, the local weevils adapt with some 'invader' new hosts. So far i had no problems with native species here. Regards on their light requirements, i put most of the Brachys next to Dendrobiums, maybe that's how they migrate easily. It works on Paphs...

    Orchid weevil, the most damaging pest in Indonesia

    Sorry, i was trying google drive and apparently it didnt work, so here's the pictures : Early damaged, usually the dead tissues caused by the adults. The crown is damaged by the larvae, as you can see in the shoot point. Since Paph. doesnt have much edible tissues for the...
