    Paphiopedilum Bud and Buddy (Guessing Game)

    This huge bud escaped my attention until I moved the plant because it was blocking my view. The bud somehow grew in my blind spot. How daring of it lol. Yet despite its sneaky ways, it was still under the watchful eye of its ivory buddy. As before, we are now in the bud name game. Anyone can...

    Phrag. Eumelia Arias setting bud?

    Is my Eumelia Arias putting out a bud? The growth emerging from the crown has some light striations on its sides and when viewed from the top, doesn’t look “creased” like new leaves do.
