    Beautiful! That is one I cannot manage to bloom. It grows very slowly for me and never bloomed in 8 years :mad::( . Any advice on cultural conditions ?

    Very well grown. Never thought this species grows that big. What kind of light do you have?

    I’ve read on here some time ago that it grows best when treated like a cattleya. High light and dried out between watering. Not you typical paph conditions! Maybe there was something about a winter rest as well.

    Before I sold out prior to moving, I had one in S/H, growing right along side all my other slippers.

    I recently put two in f/w/c as an experiment. If either begin to look unhappy I shall put them straight back into bark. It has only been two weeks so there is nothing to report other than having to top up regularly for the new roots. Next week I am going to use filtered pond water in one with pond weed on top for the new roots.

    Another vote for growing them bright - mine blooms right next to blooming Catts and Dens, in bark mix.

    This plant comes from the south of India and has been found growing on small islets within rivers, i.e. surrounded by water. It only makes sense that it likes very warm, humid conditions and bright light. It grows brighter than most other paphs and should not be allowed to dry out severely at any time. With the right conditions it is a vigorous grower. Hope this helps.

    My three plants grow wet next to my cattleyas with cool nights and warm days but still no blooms. One is larger than the other two.

    Plant in middle is the largest at about 13 inch leavespan from tip to tip. Other two behind on sides are about 8-9 inches.

    I’m stumped lol.

    Setaylien is right. They do grow quite warm and wet in South India. Perhaps they may need even higher light than I give.
