Hi all,

I'm a carnivorous plant hobbyist (mainly Nepenthes) and I am interested in branching out into Paphs. Got my first paph (P. armeniacum) a week ago- not a great beginner plant, but I am fortunate enough to live in a climate with cool, mostly frost free winters, so it is wintering outdoors in a sheltered spot to induce blooming.

The plants that interest me the most are the complex "bulldog" paph crosses, particularly the older ones. I collect old Nepenthes hybrids from the Victorian era, and other old crosses that are in danger of being lost in cultivation. I would like to do the same with paphs. I suspect these plants will prove significantly easier to grow than my P. armeniacum!

Any complex Paph will be easier than armeniacum. :) there is a grower on this forum who is knowledgable about older crosses and if you want newer ones Theresa Hill is a vendor here.
