    Default Paph Hsinying Alien

    I bought this Paph a little while ago, more for the foliage than the bloom as I didn't know what it would look like. The digital camo look of the leaves was very intriguing to me. Shortly after I got it home, this bud started shooting up. So, I can't take credit for it. It seems to be doing ok, but is there anything special I should do for it? It is my first Paph.

    I don't let my pahps get too dry. I may even water a bit more than necessary. Have not had a problem with a single paph with my culture. All are adding leaves or in spike.

    Love the description! "Digital camo" is very accurate.

    I'm in the same boat as you, with a new Paph that is in bud. I'm curious to know, what medium is it potted in and how long did it take for your bud to initiate and get to the level of maturity in the photo?
