hi out there!
i got a paph. micranthum from antec labs this month -- free shipping, too whoo hoo!!
was wondering if any of you out there are growing this baby well. the plant that i got has a ls of 4", and theres a second fan on it which is 2". how big do these have to be before they bloom (the more mature fan has not bloomed yet)?
ive looked on the antec labs culture page for parvis, but the page on the micranthum just says "coming soon"
maybe one of you can help? cuz i need it!
micranthum is a small thing. 6-8" is definitely blooming size. However, it is one of the harder paphs to bloom (for me). I think a good solid month long 50 degree winter rest might help. From what I hear, it's not as hard to bloom as armeniacum though. Mine doesn't throw stolons like armeniacum, but you might want to watch out for them so they don't get trapped somewhere.
