Took them out in the sun


The vietnamense is the notorious two-flower per stalk presented in another thread http://www.slippertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40865
the volonteanum is a first-flowering from flask, wonderful flower but not a good grower:eek: and the wallisii(realised that its not popowii but warszewiczianum was too quick in the heading - which I am not able to change now) came from Peruflora in 2012.

Thanks

For me it is not, dont know why, but it comes from a flask and the rest is worse. Could be genetic or.....its me:p
 
All three are very nice! Bjorn, are you happy with the colour of the vietnamense leaves? Here is a newly collected one! http://www.orchid.or.jp/orchid/people/tanaka/orchid/org/newpaph8.html

Not really Mike, but that is how they turn out after some time. I have been changing fertiliser composition relatively lately, think things green up a bit. Btw. Most of the leaves you see are quite old some three years plus I would assume. The new ones look better;)
If you look at the old pics in that thread I attached, you will see the same leaves.
But I agree, the leaves could improve, perhaps the light is a bit high as well?

Yes I heard that they like a lot of shade but it's very hard to find good habitat info on this species!
