    Paph. praestans - first multi floral blooming in my new place

    I bought it from my Indonesian friend 3-4 years ago in flower, as I like the relatively horizontal petal stance for it. It is very difficult for growing and grows slowly and finally blooms before me. It is the first multi floral paphs blooming in my green house so I treat it as a small test of...

    ID please

    I bought it from my Indonesia friend few years ago as richardianum but I am obviously “cheated” by my friend. It doesn’t like a lowii or its variation lyanne. Anyone can tell me the ID of this multi floral species? Thank you in advance.

    Ordinary haynaldianum or its variation laurae?

    I had bought this from Mainshow Orchid in Taiwan last year and the seller told me that this seedling comes from a selfing of wild plant many years ago. It does not look like an ordinary haynaldianum but a bit like it’s variation laurae. Can any expert give me enlightenment on it?

    My paph. ooii growing for 4 years

    I had a chance to get a few ooii from Indonesia 4 years ago. Unfortunately, all plants were in critical condition when they come to me. After extra caring for 4 years, I recently begin to repot them and I am pleased to see some new roots on the plant. The old growth only has 1 leaf left while...

    Will anyone grow paph in such a strong light?

    I am going to change the growing strategies for my multiflorals paph this year and use strong lights to grow some of the multi floral paph. For gigantifolium, supardii, sanderianum and their hybrids, low light is still used. I think in particular for Philippinese, roths, kolopakingii and...

    Paph. Mount Toro album

    This is not the right time for its blooming. The weather is too hot causing fewer flower count, smaller flower and lighter in color.

    Paph. Saint Swithin “莊苑”

    It is the first time for me to bloom it with 6 flowers. I do not know how to translate the clone’s name into English but it comes from the same series of the clone ‘Spring Swallow’. Both are still high grade SS in the market. Enjoy!

    Paph. laevigatum “in charm”

    This is a division of the captioned clone from in charm orchid nursery in Taiwan. This clone can produce up to 5 flowers per spike under the owner’s culture but I can only do 3 this year. Lots of improvement on my culture skills are expected.

    Old school rothschildianum

    An old school roths. The flower count, color and shape is nice but the size of it is doing a dead bowl on its cultural value. The roths in Taiwan is improving too fast in recent years, that making those old school roths fades out rapidly. Anyway, for sharing please.
