Paph Bel Royal ( rothschildianum x philipinense ). Just took this shot at our local show today and this must be one of the largest paphs I've seen. It was bought as a small plant 15years ago and hasn't been re-potted for the past 10 years--- and is on drip irrigation. The gentleman who grew this also had another two marvellous plants on show namely a Chisis aurea x rosea and a dendrobium. The only fert he uses is phostrogen and epsom salts -- and hardly ever repots --- make you think don't it??

Nope! What works for him would not necessarily work for others. Beautiful plant nonetheless. Thanks for showing.

Nice! But Paph. Bel Royal is (kolapakingii x rothschildianum). Paph. St. Swithin is (roth x phil).

Sorry about that Ramon but you are quite right--must have been thinking of the other paphs shown today.
