    Slow growing rust discolouration around base of Paph. kolopakingii

    https://www.slippertalk.com/threads/paph-bel-royal-kolopakingii-x-rothschildianum.49371/ I use a ~25ppm CalMag 12-1-1 feeding on every watering. I water every other day, sometimes daily. Temps are between 20-28C.

    Slow growing rust discolouration around base of Paph. kolopakingii

    Thanks! I posted some flowers recently on another thread and just repotted it. I find it to be one of the easier and most vigorous growers in my collection. My main problem is how big it is :). It was tolerant to the abuses of moving and extreme temperatures. I have it in pure sphagnum moss and...

    Slow growing rust discolouration around base of Paph. kolopakingii

    Hi, I noticed something similar on my Bel Royal (Roth x kolo). I noticed it after bringing the plant inside the house but it could of occurred earlier. In my case, I think it is a physiological response to temperatures and not biotic stress. It doesn't seem to spread or cause leaf death so while...

    Paphiopedilum armeniacum from Fox Valley Orchids

    Nice boom, well done!

    Paph. armeniacum

    I've been growing my armeniacum in baskets similarly. I found that when the media breaks down I get a flush of growth but if left alone, rot follows soon after. I'm curious how you prevent them from rotting? My guess is your watering flushes out the decomposing fir bark and leaving just the...

    rothschildianum 'Charles Edwards'

    Anyone know the history of this particular plant, ie, who was/is Charles Edward? While a student at UH Manoa I had the pleasure of meeting Henrietta Fujiwara who gave the University her collection of paphs, several plants of 'Charles' and 'Rex' were in the mix. I hope the collection is still...

    Paphiopedilum emersonii

    Thanks again Dave, I ask because I've found my malipoense and phrag kovachii-bessiei compots did not appear to like the bottom heat. However there could have been other factors involved. Sorry did not mean to deviate the topic away from your admirable photos!

    Paphiopedilum emersonii

    Thanks Dave, just one more followup question: when you say "all" do you mean all? Are there some paph (or even phrag) sp. that prefer cooler temps even as seedlings? Oops two questions :).

    Two Paph Bel Royal?

    Perhaps the one with the stonei resemblance is Bel Royal x stonei. The other has kolopakingii features (color and lip formation) but the petals look a little too straight (like a roth but with less color). However that alone shouldn't eliminate to possibility. How big are the plants? If...

    Paphiopedilum barbatum

    Great presentation and photos (oh and the flowers are nice too :))!

    Paphiopedilum emersonii

    Impressive flower Dave, nice symmetry. As seedlings do you still give them a cool, dry winter rest? If no, at which point do you do? I have a couple of compots of this species that seem to enjoy the bottom heat mat (for now at least). Healthy looking plants Leslie. They look well cultured.

    Paph. Bel Royal (kolopakingii x rothschildianum)

    Sorry, I meant if someone had a roth flower open now and are willing to use it as a pollen receiver, I can send the pollen of the Bel Royal to make [rothchildianum x (rothchildianum x kolopakingii)]. Yes, since paph flowers are hermaphroditic someone could also send me roth pollen and I could...

    Paph. Bel Royal (kolopakingii x rothschildianum)

    Thank you! If anyone has a Roth female in bloom and willing to use it as a female, let me know and I can try to send pollen. I've been wanting to develop a BC population to make a bigger roth.

    Paphiopedilum delenatii alba

    Hi i have a del alba flowering. Its been flowing for past couple of weeks so don't know how viable the pollen still is but can send you if interested. See my other posts here for the pictures, I think it is the same parentage as Phreds.

    Paph. Bel Royal (kolopakingii x rothschildianum)

    I was waiting for the last, 6th flower to open but I got impatient and worried the first flower would fall off first. I got this back in 2016, its been growing happily but hasn't flowered since purchase. This year I stuck it outside for a week, not sure if that did the trick or if it was...
