Please help me on some more culture requirements of paph. armeniacum and paph. esquirolei. The plants I will get are both flowering size.

The armeniacum is one healthy fan in a normal pot. I heard that they grow long stalons, what would be the best way to plant it in a basket and what tipe, I have a few of those ones with coconut hares or something like that will post a photo later. How are these plants stalons, how fast do they grow, and I will have a big specimen?

Regarding the esquirolei, how large do there flowers get? I heard the plant can get up to 50 growths is that true?

I grow two armeniacums, one in plastic basket with holes the other one in clay pot with holes as well. I grow them wet and fertilize every week.

I agree, keep these guys fairly wet, but don't lose those roots. I water mine about every 5 days in winter. Currently am watering also every 5 days, however I'm hitting them on the 3rd day with a lighter watering.
