    Bulbophyllum kubahense

    Funny this should show up today. These are about a year out of flask.Growing pretty well in the compots. Afraid to repot them. Don't want to lose any. I have been researching and searching the web but not a lot of info out there. How do others grow these?

    They are if you purchase them from Hengduan Biotech. You can even get copies of the CITEs from China.

    I bought several and had them delivered to a show. The plants were extremely small. The flasks were shaken pretty bad. I had to deflask everything immediately. Nothing survived. I have purchased over 100 flasks in the last three years. I have lost almost none. I get all my phrag flasks from...

    Paph canhii

    you will notice two have some sphagnum on top. They really don't like this. I tried several things. Fine bark & rock & perlite seems to give the best result (50%, 25%, 25%).

    Paph myanmaricum

    Someone needs to work with DFG to get permission to breed confiscated plants. That's what Antec labs did back in the day to get vietnamense legal. I think this was also done for several other new species.

    Quality large grade Perlite

    Lot of places on amazon which have really large perlite. For medium (1/4 - 5/16") the only reliable place I've found is waldor orchids.

    Cactus seeds?

    I bought some venus fly trap seeds. They grew into big cactus ... All of the hot peppers seeds I bought were not even peppers. I don't buy seeds except from established companies now.

    Paph. insigne fma. sanderianum ???

    Have you ever seen 'hall's classic' FCC/AOS from 1996? These petals are thin. Although the FCC doesn't mean that it might not be correct either.

    Paph rothschildianum

    roths are always worth keeping. Hard to get rid off even when you have to many. If it grows well for you and bloom regularly, the color and shaped are always fine!

    Paphiopedilum henryanum

    These grow like weeds for me. One of the few I can reliably bloom every year. I have noticed that the shape, size and color vary on the same plant every year. I've almost got rid of two because of the shape. The next year the shape was great, although the color wasn't as good. I would say this...

    Phalaenopsis sanderiana
