    Question need culture information : paph anitum and papuanum

    Hello everybody

    I have to new paph divisions : paph anitum & paph papuanum.

    Is there somebody here that knows how to grow them (light, fertilizing...). I have some difficulties in obtain information.

    I read for example that paph anitum doesn't need a lot of light (can you confirm ?). In comparing to delenatii what light does it need ? I you have some ideas, i will be happy.

    Default Paph anitum culture

    I researched the internet and they like deep shade probably light levels suitable for Phalaenopsis. They like warm conditions and high humidity year round. You should email silence882@gmail.com for the link to infomation with regards to Paph anitum.

    Default RE:

    paph anitum is a very hard species to grow. I have one currently that seems
    to be stable for about a month now.
    They seem to tolerate high temps ( I have reached 32 C ) in my glass house
    with no apparent ill effects.
    What they do not tolerate is low humidity. Leaves start falling and plants
    quickly die if I had low humidity followed by high temps thats why Im growing
    in a wardian case now. The humidity there is at a constant 90 percent and
    the plant seem to like it.

    this specie is indeed difficult to grow. i started with 50 plants from mindanao and i can't seem to find the right condition. the leaves are rotting even if i don't water regularly as i thought it was because of overwatering ( i actually water every other day and the medium i use is volcanic rock. i actually tried to shelter them from rain but still leaves are rotting. so it must not be the overwatering. i tried putting some plants in the open in the rain and somehow those plants seems to be looking good. one is actually spiking now. it is still too early to tell if it likes more water. i'll try to post pictures. i hope i could get the correct conditions for this specie while i still have plants left. compared to ciliolare, haynaldianum, & philippinense anitum is a tough to grow specie.
