    Hi Folks,

    This is the second "installation" I am selling. There are 3 Paphiopedilums, unnamed hybrids, the one on the right and the one on the left have a main colour of burgundy, and the one in the centre's main colour is yellow.

    They have grown amazingly well in this setup, producing copious new roots. I think they may not have had enough light, hence the somewhat pale and etiolated look especially to the left one. I have increased the light, nitrogen, and sulphur as any of these lacking could cause these symptoms. I believe they are getting enough calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese.

    At the back is also an Asplenium antiquum and a clump of Microsorum diversifolium.

    It is all planted onto a large steel baking tray! 37.6cm x 54.5cm

    The value of that volume of tufa alone, if you compare to prices from The English Tufa Company, is getting on for £100. In view of the fact that the Paphs are unnamed hybrids, and I don't have photos of them in flower either, I am willing to let this whole setup go for £55.

    This is only for sale until 4th April 2019

    Location - Watford, Herts.
