    Paph. fairrieanum, Easy?

    Hi Rick, i use reverse osmosis water with advanced nutrients micro and bloom (i dont use the "grow" formula) added to 250 ppm. Rarely they do get a top dressing with a teaspoon or so of crushed limestone. i never bothered with a ph measurement of the water though.... The plants are under a...

    Paph. fairrieanum, Easy?

    I cant say P. fairrieanum is hard to grow, in fact it is the easiest and fastest Paph out of 20+ species i grow from flask. These seedlings were deflasked about 2 years ago, and i think the biggest ones are approaching blooming size by now. I dont treat them very special, they grow in a bark...

    its the top leaves, some of the adductums look like they have a cellular collapse too in the leaves, maybe the air its not humid enough?

    Deflasked Seedlings with yellow leaf tips

    Thanks for the welcome :) They are now in a mix of small bark, charcoal and perlite, i left the agar half intact, just washing off as much as i could . Then the seedlings went into community pots. i just gave them the first nutrition ~ 200 ppm

    Deflasked Seedlings with yellow leaf tips

    Dear Slipper friends, Some weeks ago i got some flasks of diverse multifloral paphio species from Taiwan. they were roughly one week in transit before they arrived. They were a little shaken and bruised, so i deflasked the problematic ones immediately. Now, 2 weeks later, i managed that...
