    Phrag longifolium fma album

    First flowering of my only album/albino Phragmipedium in my otherwise mostly Paph collection. Bought in 2019 as a seedling and very happy with it.

    Paph sanderianum

    Paph sanderianum, one of the few non-albino species in my small collection that I belief fully deserves his space... with the extreme heat we had in Belgium, very dry air because of in-house culture, I was really affraid the bud would abort. Instead it progressed from first visible bud to open...

    Another albino family member I like to introduce: Paph Bobby Orr fma album Bobby Orr = stonei x Mount Toro {= stonei x philippinense} As a "die hard albino species lover" I realize I will have to wait many years before my "100% stonei album" seedling will ever flower, so you can...

    Paph godefroyae var. leucochilum fma album

    Another albino family member that is blooming: officially Paph godefroyae var leucochilum fma album Bloomed first time ever in March this year, now did a second blooming in December Just for fun... a little mind game: if a "leucochilum" is a godefroyae with a spotless lip, isn't a "leucochilum...

    Paph dianthum fma album

    Another albino family member that bloomed a few months ago. Hope you like it. DIanthum with some "delusions of grandeur" thinking it could be a TRIanthum if it made three flowers :) Sadly the first flower already started to fade when the last one opened.

    Paph druryi

    In my "new member Introduction" BrucherT asked me about my druryi's, so here we go... To be honest, they are a challenge, some years they will accept any bug, pest or desease around as if they were magnetic. They loose vigor and need time to recover. Then suddenly they grow like crazy and...

    Hello from DirGo in Belgium

    I have been reading this forum for many years and finally took the step last October to start posting. I live in Belgium and been growing orchids for more than 40 years. I grew in a greenhouse but after moving house in 2006 I had to go back to indoor growing. My collection has room for ±120...

    Paph philippinense var leavigatum fma album

    Time to share another family picture. First time blooming of my plant (flowered beginning of this year) I wished I had also taken a picture when it was fully open.

    Paph venustum fma measuresianum

    I would like to share another family picture. One flower open another one in the making... Very similar to my lawrenceanum fma hyeanum picture I also see the slight reddish hue at the end of the petals when I take the picture in my dark walled area with cool white ring LED; but when I take a...

    Paph bellatulum fma album

    My absolute most favorite albino !!! First flowering of two young plants earlier this year I had purchased way in 2019. To be honest getting new fans mature and healthy is still a bit of a challenge.... new fans are growing but I don't like the brown area that develops on older leaves ...

    Paph chamberlainianum

    Flowering ended mid of april... then the painful waiting started for a new fan, seems that never will come. Almost got desparate as I saw the flowered fan degrading and six months had passed, but since last week I can relax a bit.

    Paph lawrenceanum fma hyeanum

    With so many intermixed and wrong labeled 'maudiae' hybrids and so many lawrencianum variants in culture you can never be sure. I would have liked to see a bit more developed lip and maybe a more horseshoe staminode shape, a bit brighter green coloring to better match the old Desbois'...

    Paph wardii fma alboviride

    another (a bit older) family picture - in fact the plant is working on a new flower but taking it's time... will add to this post for comparing when open

    Paph appletonianum fma immaculatum (*)

    (*) bought as this albino form but on flowering sadly it got "botanically disqualified" for having small anthocyanin (red) dots - I still love it very much and for sure it deserves a place in my collection!
