    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. 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.

    Paph. gigantifolium

    These are the gigantifolium I have successfully bloomed. I have 5 blooming gigantifolium originally, but 2 spikes are blasted because of poor green house management of the site owner. So only 3 can bloom finally.
