Penang, Malaysia..d home of fabulous paphs.
After 2 months of being stuck in this dry seemingly orchid-less place, I finally did a paph drawing.. :p This is based on a watercolour painting by Pandora Sellars in Cribb's book 'The Genus Paphiopedilum Vol. 2'. I was really happy to find that the state library has several books on paphs, including Averanov's 'Slipper orchids of Vietnam'.. :D :D

Paphiopedilum lawrenceanum (sorry for the poor picture quality, but I couldn't scan it so had to take a picture with my mobile..)

Paphioboy are u in Adelaide, South Australia?

if you are, gosh, one of the better Paph growers in Australia is there, ie Nicky's Slippers. And if you are into Cymbids, then you've got a couple of the larger hybridising and growing nurseries there... just need to look around mate... get on the net and look up some of those orchid societies as well...

Bench72, yes, I am in Adelaide, SA for my studies... oh, really? I never knew there were large slipper growers in SA... I've googled 'orchid' and 'paphs' in SA but found few results... hehe.. I know there is a big cym grower, but the nursery is a bit far and I m not into cyms anyway.. Thanks... =)

Hey, how's it going!?
Good, Eric.. thanks for asking... I have found some orchids at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.. Not all were in flower though... They are Schomburgkia superbiens, Cattleya bowringiana, Dend gracilicaule, Dend (Thelychiton) speciosum n some oncidiinae (Brassia verrucosa n Oncidium barbatum)... No paphs.. :(
