    Default My First Paph delenatii, and nevium

    Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone could offer me some tips on growing my new paphs. Paph delenatii and Paph Nevium?
    They're both in what looks to be medium bark, and they're both in spike. I'm not really sure on the temps for Paph delenatii, or how to suppliment the calcium for paph nevium.

    Paph delenatii does not need basic conditions. I grow them in a mixture of fine bark, perlite, and charcoal mixture. They prefer conditions suitable for Phals. I have grown them from flask and was able to flower them as well.

    Paph niveum require calcium supplement in the form of dolomite lime added to the mix. Paph delenatii doesn't require it. They are not found associated with limestone in nature.

    I know Paph niveum likes to grow in Phal conditions with no problems. Both species require gentle air circulation and lower humidity during the evenings to dry up the excess water that gets into the crown.
