    Paph venustum

    Thanks for all the advice. It is upstairs in my ‘cool’ room at best 50% humidity. I spritz or splash it daily along with my phrags. Light is combination of lights and east window. Time for a humidifier I guess. Was so excited with 2 spikes then the flowers never opened. Will add more...

    Flower color washed out

    I bought a red phrag in bloom; it had a rich color. I have rebloomed it under T5's and the color is much lighter. Does the color wash out when the buds are set, or if I pull it out from under the high light now, will later blooms be darker?

    magdelina rose X wallisii

    Ha! Secret? Better dumb luck with phrags than any other orchid. I read that as water. I have 16 phrags of varying hybrid and species. I keep them wet and some in standing water, fertilize very lightly. They are all under T5s or in a south window. They sit outside on the shaded deck all...

    magdelina rose X wallisii

    Troy...yes. its bloomed three times since the original inquiry. I guess it just needed to get old enough...and under the T5s My nicest phrag. Big flowers and beautiful color, not a lot of flowers though, maybe total 4 on a inflourescence

    help identifying old paph, please

    Tim, This comes from 'Isakoffs'. I did not know them but they were a member of the Delaware Orchid society, so east coast. It looks much paler today in the sun. I have attached a full pic. I am trying to find the listing of their plants; it might take until the next meeting. They had...

    help identifying old paph, please

    Will do. I got it in a grab basket from a greenhouse tag obviously. But put two spikes on so, an easy bloomer. I believe it is an old variety based on the age of the collector. Not much help, I know.
