    Default Paph Gloria Naugle

    Anyone grow these ?
    Main reason for picking this particular Paph is it,s supposed to be compact(space is at a premium) & the flowers are simply amazing.
    Hints/tips ?

    im not sure, but i think that the paphrag phans on this forum like the species and long-petalled varieties of chids.

    i love parvis! i recently puchased a paph. micranthum, and next week, ill be receiving a paph. malipoense and a paph. mem. connie truax (micranthumXchamberlainianum).

    i think that you can grow gloria naugle like you grow your other paphs. moist, but not sopping wet medium; fertilizing 3 waterings in a row, then flushing; fertilizing with cal/mag once every 3 months or so. part of your hybrid is calcicorous, so i would definitely supplement with calcium.

    i grow my micranthum (which is doing really well -- with a stolon and a new leaf coming out of each of the two fans) about 6 inches away from fluorescent lights, next to a s-se facing window. i have the tiny pot that the micranthum is in cached inside another pot, and ive added diatomite in the bigger pot so that i can increase the humidity around it. oh, yeah... its planted in a mix of charcoal, chc, perlite, and diatomite.

    i think that hybrids with micranthum as a parent are supposed to be easier than the micranthum, so i wouldnt worry about it. im not planning to do anything special with the connie truax -- im just going to plop it next to my paph. praying isabel ((rothchildianumXstonei)Xgardineri). after checking the roots and transplanting into new medium (see above for components), of course.

    i hope this helps.

    GN is an amazing cross, like all the other parvi x roths. No matter what the parents, there are no GN. Or so I'm told. Some plants might bloom while 10" across, but the average is probably closer to 13-17" LS at maturity. Not very compact, but much much smaller than your standard multifloral paph. It's not the easiest to bloom, and may take a few growths before it'll throw up a spike. Grows well enough though. Flowers are very large...5-7" across, and very brightly-colored.
