    Paphiopedilum: - all in coconut husk mix unless noted

    niveum
    malipoense (2)
    vietnamense (2)
    armeniacum
    micranthum
    delenatii
    charlesworthii

    Just purchased a compot of schoseri (very excited!)

    Conco-bellatulum
    Armeni White
    NOID Primary (2, different types)
    Elfstone 'Lime Ice' x Shella Ilanes 'Green Gold' -adjusting to semihydro... slowly

    Thank you everyone for your welcomes!! :D I actually live in Baltimore, Maryland and have my collection in by a north-facing window in my apartment (I supplement light with LED and compact fluorescent lighting). All of my vietnamense are legal though, one came from OrchidInn and the other came from JEM orchids, before they closed, both of which are derived from Antec stock.

    Renegayde, I think it was the same compot you were bidding on. Sorry! I was a ferocious bidder last night! I really was taken with the schoseri flower and they are so hard to come by. Once they are ready for individual potting I would love to trade with you if you are interested.

    Thank you everyone and I will keep you posted about new additions!

    Nice collection you have there. I was growing in coconut as well but stopped as I found it didn't dry evenly enough in my climate and some growth they had was odd. Overall it's a great product though and most Paphs will grow well. I look forward to yours developing into beautiful blooming plants.

    I couldn't make the Woodstream open house this weekend, so I guess I'll have to order for the NCDOS in a few weeks. Did you go in person, any photos?
