I have a wenshanense since 2015. I was more into cattleyas and vandas, but since I moved to another city and to live in an apartment, I started growing more paphios since last summer. I'm so fascinated that now I have 29, mostly species. I share some pics, I don’t have the blooming merit (only the wenshanense and the nitens), I acquired them in bud, but I am already having my own bloomings that I will show soon. It's a very noble genre and they are growing very well. I hope you like them. Greetings from Mexico!

Wonderful stuff! Welcome, from Chicago. The “annamense” is lauchianum. I learned that in here!

Nice collection of Paph. species!
Is it easy to find(buy) Paphs in MX? We normally winterize ourselves in PV for two or three weeks but not this winter, hopefully, we can go back to MX soon. Welcome!

Thank you very much for your messages. It's a nice reception. I want to learn more about this genre through your experiences and knowledge. My best wishes for 2021!

It's not very difficult, but there's also no variety you can find as in other countries. I have the impression that it is a genre that in Mexico is not as favored or not well known into the taste of collectors as is the case of the cattleya alliance.
