I have a ton of Paphs, including hybrids and species. I grow them indoors, mostly in my basement, which has some good natural light, and supplement it with LED lighting as needed. Currently, have Paph Barbigerum and Fairrieanum species in bloom. First blooms for both. Not sure why the Fairy has such a short spike (ideas?). Cheers

Nicely done.

Sometimes fairrieanums bloom on short spikes, other times triple that height. Your plant looks fairly young so it hasn't reached its potential yet.

That's what I was thinking too... Toronto? I grew up in Montreal and born in London, Ont.

Lovely flowers....both. Two flowers on a fist time flowering barbie that's lovely......and the colouration of the fairie is very intense. If there was a ploidy issue with the fairy you would only find out it by a gene analysis, I think. But I don't thik this issue to be relevant. Who knows?

Yes Michael, remote learning since mid-March. Sure does present challenge! I hope things are going well in your Vienna!

TY Rudolf. Interesting, the second bloom on the barbie dropped already before the first one. So clearly the second growth was less strong. But shows promise for the future for sure. I will keep my eye on the Fairrie.....
