Thanks for sharing your very nice selection of plants! My favs are the parishii, such well grown plants of this species are seldom. Also love the bellatulums, i still have Problems to get them growing. And the Roths are stunning. Which source?

Hello Martin, the bigger roth in the picture Is another old plant that I labeled ' Giorgi 1991'.
(Giorgi was the owner of a big botanical orchids nursery and one of the first who had roth available in Italy along with Phrag. Bessae.
It Is a big plant with a leaf span of 1 mt.
The other Roth. Come from a flask I imported 20 years ago from Australia, of this batch I have 10 specimen plants some flowered and some not yet.the cross Is 'Rex fcc/aos x Mont millais fcc/aos. It's a much more compact plant.

About bellatulum a lot of great info have been given on this forum, I only want to add that many years ago in Germany I had the opportunity to visit( and buy of course) a paph. Nursery with a big bellatulum collection.
The grower, in Winter time, used to place his plants high up Just under the roof of his Gh in a very Sunny exposition. A great day/night thermal excursion along with good air circulation Is certainly helpful.

But most important Is that any grower condition Is different!!!

I keep mine up high with 50%shade as our Winter sun Is quite strong.

Lorenzo, I've seen your second series of photos and the flowers are the same impressive as they in your first series. I like especially your two very pretty Vandas. Are they both hybrids ? Because I believe to see a lot influence of Euanthe (Vanda) sanderiana in the first photo ? 👌

Hi Guru, kind as always. Yes that's It! Vanda Sanderiana. The Blue one Is V. Gordon Dillon 'Lea' a very floriferous one.
