    armeniacum is the most notorious parvi when it comes to stolon formation. It's as if you cannot possibly have two growths connected in a normal way. I've seen micranthum with and without stolons, but it is probably #2 on the most stolon paph list.

    I have read that with regards to these paphs, the stolons give rise to new plants, that then fall off the parent plant and tumble down the limestone cliff, thereby making new colonies. Seems like a stretch to me.

    Phrag. besseae (not dalessandroi) is also famed for its stolons. A funny story about my besseae--for the first 5 years I had the plant, these @@^$ stolons confounded me from keeping more than 2 growths in a pot at a given time. Then, all of a sudden, it stopped making them. Going on growth #3 in a normal habit now!

    So let me see if I have this straight...I was entering the ecua. in the database today and entered it as a seedling, since it is a baby, but it is a baby as a stolon, from a mature plant, which it was divided from. So it is more a baby (S) than a division, no? If I were to buy this plant from a vendor, would it be classified as a seedling or a division? maybe...

    Heather, if you were to buy it from a vendor, technically it would be a division because it was not grown from a seed. A seedling is from a seed.

    it would be a division, as it is genetically identical to the parent.

    I just pulled off a "runner" from my Clair de Lune 'EVB', which is at best seedling size, but it is a division. How's that for ebay advertising? "established division of an awarded blah blah"

    Well, duh! *that* makes just too much sense doesn't it?

    Okay, will change the db. See, that's why I ask all these questions! Always curious!

    Curiosity killed the cat. The more you know, the more stressed you get when something goes wrong....

    Ahh, the good old days of blind dumb luck orchid growing......

    Let that be a lesson to all else who think they can grow a paph and not let it turn into a full blown addiction.
