    Default New Paph

    So, I went on the psychopsis search and ended up with one that arrived yesterday with both spikes in tact.

    But, the same vendor had a great price on a nice looking, previously bloomed Paph Liemianum x Delenatii. This is only my third paph, I have one maude type that has bloomed for me and another that is just sort of hanging out not doing much.

    I'm hoping someone will tell me this isn't a terribly picky one, and that my west window will make it happy. LOL Any special cultural advice on this one for me?

    Thanks!

    Hi... it should be one of the easier Paph primary hybrids to grow...
    but I would be a bit concerned about the WEST facing window...
    NEVER any direct sunlight... but I grow both of the parents of this hybrid
    in fairly bright [for paphs] conditions... about 1200-1500 footcandles... in a
    fairly humid area.
    I have a bit more info to share if you want... including some pictures...
    let me know...

    I don't agree with Scotty. I grow about 100 Paphs. They are in a greenhouse under shade cloth but my Paphs are close to the unprotected western wall of the greenhouse. I do keep the strap leaf ones closer to the west wall than the mottled leaf ones but they all get direct afternoon sun. What is important is that the leaf temps does't get too hot. Therefore, I am of the opinion that they can take close to full sun as long as the air circulation is good to keep the leaf temperature down. I think if you keep it a foot away from the window and you keep a fan blowing across the plants that they should do fine.

    I'm kind of in the middle on this. I have my paphs in a NE window. gets morning sun. They are growing like crazy, however they haven't rebloomed yet after 1 year.

    I've had an Annabellchen since about May on a West facing window and it seems to be doing fine so far. I actually have a bunch of mottled leaf Paphs on that window and one already re-bloomed. Mind you I am in the North of England and we've had a rather rubbish summer this year.

    Looking at Scotty's pictures, looks like you have got yourself a fairly nice looking Paph. I might even need to add this to my wish list.

    It looks like it will have some wonderful purple/pinks in it. Something that would spark my interest too.

    bright shade is fine. I have all my paphs on a south windowsill with a lace curtain for some shade. selected strap leafs in front, maudiae types in back. in the shade of some dens/catts would be just fine. a slight topdressing of crushed oystershell (not the powdered lime) is probably optional but if you have it handy you might as well throw a pinch on.
