    My first leuco and it's first flower. From a flask from a few years ago. It's a bit cuppy and some of the edges have browned off but I still like it and it's immaculate lip.

    did you make this flask from your own cross? or was the flask bought from a seller?

    Good work - congrats on the flowering! Nice and interesting pattern, by the way - what is the cross?!

    Kind regards, Jens

    I bought the flask. There was no information about the cross. So how do you grow yours? What minimum temperatures and how do you handle them in winter?

    That is quite an accomplishment growing plants from flasks, I always kill plants from flasks , they maybe survived for a year then in the end still died . I am still a novice in growing brachy paphs, a lot of death plants , changing thru many media to no avail .

    The trick is to grow them warm and don't remove them from the community pot until they are almost flowering sized. I learned this in the last couple of years. Before that I lost almost everything. This leuco is the last one still alive from that flask! I don't lose any from flask now. https://www.slippertalk.com/threads/thaianum.47359/

    thank for the tip. I will keep that in mind , that may be the reason why they died when got potting individually .

    The second one is very nice! What is that you are growing them in. Is it sand?

    Love the pattern on this, especially that it IS a pattern, not just patchy dark splotch (I know some people like that and I’m not insulting it, just not my thing).

    Love the white passerine-eggy lip! Are reflexed petals a goal?
