    Thanks for the link and I have been to the website before.

    My favorite is the large yellow ladyslippers because they remind me of Paph philippinense because of their twisted dark petals.

    I was disappointed they had none of those in bloom when I was there.

    2. long-petalled phrag species

    3. big vinicolor paphs, white complex paphs, solid red phrags

    4. big fragrant bench-consuming "macro"catts

    5. all other paphs & phrags

    You know, I wasn't always this way. I started off with the big fragrant catts and a big dinner plate vanda or two. I used to hate paphs, no joke. But you know as they say, once you go paph, you don't go back?

    Believe it or not, I used to hate Phrags BIG time and promised myself that I would never waste my money on those plants but boy, was I so wrong?

    LOL! You did? That is so hard to believe!

    Jason - isn't it funny how one moves on...I thought I was really into the catts too at the beginning, but now I am wondering where else I could put them so I could grow more paphs and phrags! Hopeless!

    My love affair w/ phals and dends was terribly fleeting. Ended in a flash almost as soon as it had begun.

    Heather, you're showing symptoms of a Paph and Phrag addiction. Do you need help? I don't think so.
