Hello everyone,

I'm excited to be here again.
20 years ago I had a small but prosperous greenhouse full of orchids.
My main interest was paph's with a special passion for first generation hybrids.
In those years the greenhouse was my gateway island and Koopowitz's "tropical slipper orchids" was my bible.
As life went on, we moved abroad, the family grew and the career became more demanding.
Attempts to grow paph's at home in a new environment failed, and I gave it up.
About half a year ago I encounterd serious health issues that prevented me from working, dancing, painting and basically doing everything I love.
Well, almost everything I love.
I decided to start over and try to grow paphs in my kitchen windowsill.
I hope to share and learn with you all.

Welcome and good luck with your Paphs and your health. I am also living in NL and I'm growing paphs both indoors and in a greenhouse (an expensive option at the moment).

HI Justin,
Nice to have a neighbor with the same passion.
Where do you live?
Is there a paph loving Vereniging in NL?
Have a nice weekend!
