    Default Paph Callosum cultivation

    Just bought 4 plants from a German nursery(all look fine).
    But i couldn,t help myself from buying a Paph Callosum
    I mainly bought it because of the very mottles leaves & figured it
    would grow in the same enviroment as my Chamberlainianum.
    It has 3 growths(it has flowered before) & for the price about $25
    i thought it was a bargain.
    So any hints/tips etc

    I don't and can't grow paphs, but I did have a callosum which I kept alive. It grew and bloomed in very very low light. (It could have used a little more light, though.)

    both are relatively-low light species. maybe slightly brighter than a phal but nothing like catt light. they can grow side by side.

    Just 1 thing does it have a flowering season(summer, winter etc) or does it just flower when it,s ready.

    callosum flowers when its ready. multiple times a year when it gets mature. i don't grow chamberlainianum, so don't know that much--that one gets big if i recall

    If my memory can be trusted (which it absolutely can not), mine flowered in early fall and again around March.
