Good morning,

my paph vietnamense is blooming again :)
Sadly it is just a one growth plant and the growth is also not very big and strong

Beautiful ! Seems to me that this specie is a little bit difficult to cultivate. Why?

That is a beauty. Lots of pink and a nice pouch.
Early on I had allot issues with rot but with a drier root zone I seem to do fairly well at this point. Here are three not in the traditional plastic pot. The two in clay have the std bark mix except for a higher ratio of sponge rock, 1/3 or more. The net pot has less sponge rock and shredded moss added but the same end game, aired out root zone.37be839e4f701e685ad457972bb9ebfc.jpg

Stephen it displays fine on the phone. I'll have to check it out from work. I might be able to adjust if need be. Four inch clay pots for reference.
