    Yes, maybe linden !

    Four years between two flowerings. The growth of emersonii is very slow as hangianum.
    I don't have particular secret for emersonii.
    I just have a special culture for paphiopedilum.
    I use organic materials for substrate and fertilizer.
    My substrate is :
    - 3 part of 'chips of coco'
    - 1 part of 'paillis de chanvre'
    - 1 part of 'pouzzolane'
    - 1 part of 'sphagnum'
    I fertilize with organic fertilizers for citrus or tomatoes " bio "
    I never use chemical treatments or synthetic fertilizers ; always " bio " !
    It's special and I have good results.

    Beautiful flowering ! Seems to me that you control very well the Paphiopedilum culture.
    About your Coco chips: did you use the one sold for mulching ?

    Whats your water? Do you make a tea out of the organic fert? Or do you just mix them on the media?
    Good info. Thanks.

    Yes, it's the coco for mulching !...I wash the coco with water.


    I use the water of my town - PH 7.0 - I put the fertilizer on the surface of the compost once every 3 weeks :

    I tested this fertilizer on a few plants for two years and the results proved good.

    Beautiful emersonii. I have not seen one with such perfection in a long time. The fact it has the short stem points to the original emersonii and not the vietnamese strain.
