    Really good culture. Congrats
    What is the NPK of your citrus and tomato fertilizer, do you fertilize all year round?

    Hemp mulch according to google translate and google pics seems to match up too.

    May be a bit difficult to obtain in the states. :eek:

    Ill join everyone in saying well done. Getting it to bloom is impressive in it's own right, but the excellent quality as well....that plant is a gem.

    "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."
    I am not sure that can be used as an ID for source location, since the emersonii in Vietnam varies greatly, all shapes and sizes , length of spikes.This youtube below is just from one orchid garden in Vietnam.



    I had one in the past the flower is so close to the leaves that it could not even present itself properly.
    We may have to ask Canh to confirm wether all of the emersonii in Vietnam are tall

    Certainly not ; I bought this paphiopedilum emersonii 12 years ago as a very young plant from Nardotto, an Italian producer :

    My apologies if my comment contained an offensive suggestion; I’m used to cactus forums, where stuff is often from the wild.

    Such a beautifull emersonii... Great form and very intense colouration of the staminode! Congrats!

    On the hypothese of the length of the inflorecens being a geographical marker in this species, I have my doubt, though - my own emersonii in flower at the moment has a relative long inflorecence, but comes from Wenqing Perners nursery in Hengduan Mountains, China.
    So I wonder, if there is any evidence in the litterature supporting that notion?

    Kind regards, Jens
