    Lightbulb Paph randsii - culture tips please

    Hi everyone.

    I have just got the Paph of my dreams, I have wished for this plant for nearly 2 decades and now I finally have one...but I cannot find much about cultivation.

    I am growing in the north of the UK, so the weather is not fantastic and I am growing in a greenhouse in summer (min 12 degrees) and indoors on windowsills in winter.

    has anyone got tips on compost, light, temperature or anything else to help me keep this beautiful plant..

    I am growing many seedlings of this species for the past year, grow them as Bruce mentions, hot, bright but not direct light, high humidity. mine grow in a bark mix for seedlings. If you have success growing Paph phillipinense, then use the same culture for this species too.
