    Paph fairrieanum

    The largest by far of seedlings I deflasked a few years ago. It is also the last to bloom but think this the best flower the flask has produced. From In Charm “HLS” x sib “NaeShan” Gary UK DSCF4337 by Gary Dobbs, on Flickr DSCF4333 by Gary Dobbs, on Flickr DSCF4331 by Gary Dobbs, on Flickr

    Paph Death Star x anitum “Hsiao”

    Hi all, This is a first time bloom for me around 3 years out of flask from In Charm. Not really had any idea what to expect so was looking for opinions both good or bad. I do like the colours but not sure about the expected form and whether this may change on future blooms. The plant is very...

    Phrag kovachii

    All, I have been growing this plant now for a good 5 years. Since I changed it to basket culture with a mix of orchiata and sphag. moss, it has taken off. It had a mature growth a year ago, grew a sheath but nothing else. It now has a fully mature growth, thrown another sheath but has sat...

    A few multis in bloom.

    Hi All, All seem to come together but no shows which is typical. They won't last until there is one so will enjoy for a few weeks. Have waited 4 years for the Paph Angel Hair of which I am still doubtful about the bloom. Does'nt seem enough sanderianum influence for me, more roth. Very nice...

    Chui Hua Dancer flask.

    On a recent visit to the Malvern Show in the UK, one of Europe,s largest orchids shows, purchased this flask which was on In Charm's stand. Managed to acquire a full size plant from Sam a couple of years ago and it's just in bud, so this flask was a surprise purchase. Listed as sanderianum 2015...

    Paph ID needed

    Hi All, I've waited 4 years for this plant to mature and it was labelled "Angel Hair". I bought it privately so it was a risk. However, it has a further 3 growths approaching maturity and this has produced 4 very large flowers which I will post later. Right, now looking for your opinions...

    Adductum Anitum advice

    Hi all, I purchased a couple of flasks of each of the above just under a year ago and they seem to have done very well. I haven't yet lost a seedling. They have progressed through our winter period with the supplementation of light and a heatmat. I have fed every couple of days as the medium...

    Paph Michael Koopowitz

    A cross of philippinense "Daya Twister" x sanderianum "Dr Lee". I acquired these seedlings about 4 years ago from In Charm when they were at Peterborough. They have taken a while to mature but pleased with the first bloom of 4 flowers. Love the shape and colour and 2 new growths. I have 4 more...

    Feed adjustments.

    Hi All. I'm always experimenting on my mainly multifloral paph collection. I mainly keep to feeding my Akerne feed, 13-3-15-7-2 normally around once a week at around 400 u/S strength. My seedlings get watered every other day at around 100 u/S. I use RO water and grow in orchiata with added...

    St Swithin

    One of Sam's plants I bought a while ago. The flowers are huge and are nicely spaced apart on a strong stem around 70 cm in height. A plant that is growing fast and should be good in a few years with multiple growths. Gary UK
