    John, thank you for researching all of that and posting it. That must have taken some time. I'm afraid that while uncasteeb seems to have the perfect conditions for growing it, ours will be less than ideal, and I'll be fighting an uphill battle trying to maintain daytime temps that reach no higher than the mid 70s. Your 60-80 though, sounds just about perfect, so I bet it would do really well for you if you have the light.

    Nice research job!

    That was interesting John, thanks! Both are mentioned in Sander's biography, The Orchid King, which is a pretty interesting read, though I could have gone for more of the dramatic adventure stories from Sanders' orchid hunters - would have made it a little more exciting!

    lga, I'll bet like most paphs, it will easily take higher temperatures than that with humidity and air movement especially in the warm months when it's growing. Do you get warm day temperatures in the greenhouse all year 'round?

    I have the light, but not sure I have the space right now. You know, when you're planning an in-home growing space, 30 or 35 plants sounds like plenty. What was I thinking?

    Some day..... Luckily I can't even remember now where that division was that I was lusting after.
