Paph sangii, Paph spicerianum and Paph thaianum are all enjoying the warm summer temperatures we've been having this year. Paph thaianum usually blooms in the spring for me but the other two are right on schedule.

Lori, can't say which one of your trio I like the best....they all are lovely ones....maybe the P. sangii, which is the most coloured one.....or the P. spicerianum, which is a greenish one which are my favourite P. spicerianums.....or the P. thaianum, which is the cutest one. 👌

Excellent thaianum!! You should get that judged - if that appeals to you, if possible - looks better than several awards I've seen!

Thank you so much everyone for all your kind words. Unfortunately we don't have judging back yet (thanks to covid) otherwise I'd probably take up your advice. I took sangii a couple years back and it got some attention but that was about it. Thaianum and spicerianum have won ribbons at shows but never got to visit the judges' table. I'll keep trying!

I really like the rounded shape of your thaianum……mine (in bloom for a few months) has wider petals and I like the shape in yours:

Yes, here is the whole plant. I find it's actually quite easy to grow in my conditions. It likes bright light, warmer temperatures and lots of water in the summer and I keep it a bit on the drier side in the winter but I don't let it dry out completely. It grows in a mix of Orchiata/perlite/charcoal and I've added some chopped sphagnum to hold on to the moisture a bit longer.
