    Sarcochilus falcatus

    first bloom just one year out of flask from seed donated by a nice forum member. Very pleased with it. I grow it in a GH which stays cool (around 10°C) in winter but gets hot in summer. I'm trying several mounts: terracotta tubes, Juniper logs, tree fern all work fine so far. Thanks again!

    An out of season lueddemanniana

    ID Request - Paphiopedilum Wössner Wolke

    I'm not guessing what it is, but it is unlikely a Woessner Wolke. About as unlikely as elephants can fly.

    Dresdner Ostern 2018, Orchid Show

    Thanks Jean for all the nice pics! Taking photos is always a challenge in that exhibition, but the impression in the show is very spectacular. The organizers of the orchid show have little influence on the general light concept, since the orchid show is part of a large Easter fair, but they do...

    New section in genus Paphiopedilum proposed.

    Thanks a lot to both of you guys, for bringing these papers to our attention. The publication of the Asian scientists appears to be a top solid piece of work.:clap:

    Paph Stoke Poges x St Ouen

    Thanks! The flower measures 10 cm in diameter. Whole plant pic attached. It has made three flowers in the past and plenty new growths which makes the single flower a little disappointing.
