The early crosses of PEY were slow as molasses. I think if you got a modern cross (with line bred parents) it would be a different story. New roths are pretty fast growing compared to the ones you could get 30 years ago. And a heck of a lot cheaper...

I don't know anything about Shin Yi Formosa. I'd take the PEY myself.

You're more likely to get an unpleasantly-shaped flower from shin-yi formosa, but they will be about equal in terms of care.

Hi folk. Just piggy backing on this thread...

Any advice on culture for the following?
I believe the first 3 are maudiae hybrids.

Paph. Pitchweb '#2' x Paph. Hsinying Glory 'HOF' AM/AOS.

Paph. Hilo Citron 'Giant Dorsal' x Paph. Spring Wolf 'New Horizon'

Paphiopedilum barbatum var nigritum x sib

here is my growing condition:

I under grow lights

Temp variation

Ac setting: 61-71

Relative room temp 70F upwards to 78F

Relative humidity

-area without humidifier

40%-60%

I find all PEOYs are a bit slow. The SYF I have grow very fast. Pick medium sized healthy plants as the first priority. Worry about the flowers, later.

What’s PEOY? And SYF?

I have a PEOY. It grows very slow. It seems to be actively growing during spring and summer months and then it stalls. I am thinking getting a heat pad, perhaps it grow warm??
