    I'm really enchanted by that beauty!
    Unfortunately emersonii is one of two Paph species I had no luck with...
    André just found your substrate composition, sounds interesting, I never heared of hemp straw, which special characteristics has it?

    Yes Michael,
    On the leaflet, it is noted that a little nitrogen is present and that this promotes plant growth.
    I have no knowledge of plant chemistry.
    I'm trying to replace synthetic products with organic products. I spent 2 years testing various substrates; it was the one that caught my attention, the growth was better and adapted to organic fertilization (fertilizer for tomatoes or citrus fruits).
    Of course, several substrates and fertilizers can be used, it is simply the one that best suits my growing conditions.

    Thats true, substrates have to fit conditions and growers habit!
    Thanks

    Good job growing it. This species can be tough to grow.
