    Default Paph exul culture?

    I'm getting a Paph exul with the intention of giving it as a gift. But I'd like to be sure on the culture for this specific Paph before giving it away. I know the general care for Paphs and vendor recommendation. But I'd like to know if anyone here has or had this one and what conditions they grew it under.

    I have a Paph exul - actually a pot with multiple growth. This is a warm growing paph and thrive in the tropical conditions in my place. It is one of the easiest paphs to grow here. It blooms 2 or 3 times year for me and at the moment it has a bud and will open in a few days

    Yew do you let it dry any inbetween watering? What is the coolest temp you get? I may have to switch the intended recipient of this Paph.

    Since I water 2 times a day the growing medium doesn't dry out. Watering 2 times a day may be excessive for your grow area.Our temperatures here are in the 90s F during the day and the lowest temp doesn't go below 74. Paph exul should be able to withstand temp in the mid 50s. BTW my exul has opened this morning and I may post a picture of it if I have the time.

    Grow exul hot and bright Very bright for mature plants. Leaves should be stiff and light green, a bit yellowish is acceptable.
