Hi
i have these Paphs for few years now and they have grown well ( I think) and in spite of having 3-4 heads and good vegetative growth, i don't see any flowers. Can some one throw some light on this, i have given enough light also
Thank you

And what are your day/night temperatures both summer and winter? Are they grown under artificial light?
Hi
Day temperatures during summer are 32 C + for short time, night will 19- 22 C
we don't have pronounced winter here, however during the months of Nov - Jan, it will be around 24-25C during day time and will be 16-18 C during night. As these are kept in the poly house, there may not be much variations in the temperature. They are all under natural light in poly house with shade net during summer months to filter additional light.

Some roths/hybrids needs a bit cooler at night to initiate flowering.
You could try more light and slowing down with the fertilizer in the 'cooler' weather.
