Excellent! I also enjoy panning around and looking at the other plants in your exul pics. Looking forward to pics of your opened exul’s.

So far I saw just one small photo of Paph. exul alba in the book of Olaf Gruss. The other photo shown there is a semi-alba typ. So I'm keen to see better photos from your plants here. Fingers crossed. 🤞

I have seen hundreds of exul-pictures recently from Thai growers. Also a lot of collected plants still offered.

Could you post some of the best ones you like? Or links? I'm intrigued to see them to compare.

i will post nice ones, if I see.
Biggest problem is to find out how big they are!

This one seemed to be nice, its for sale. But the dorsal sepal is only 3.5 cm.
Pictures dont show. There was one with 4.5cm recently.
Colorwise ther are more yellow or deeper color ones.
You are judging, whats favored?

Though small, the shape is nice with matching dorsal sepal and ventral synsepalum, framing the pouch very well. The color is the typical yellow with maroon spots.

I prefer lime green in the flowers as it grabs my attention more. Saying that, the yellows do get awards frequently if it is harmonious.

Most awarded cultivars have dorsal widths around the 4 cm range, but IMHO shape should precede size.

I like the last pic. Green with white halo.

Are they grown warm in Thailand in the lowlands?

I guess everywhere. There are just higher temperatures, especially in the night.
Thats why they have flowers a few weeks earlier. Its just starting here.
Thai name is yellow orchid from Krabi island.
