    Default A growing collection

    Inspired by her thread, I went to one of Becky1539’s favorite GH/breeders over the weekend and purchased several new orchids. Again inspired, this time by the RVO forum, I decided to try something somewhat new (for me). So, I now have 3 new paph’s in 1.25 plastic pots. Introducing:
    Paph. delenatii X Paph. micranthum
    Name:  dilxmicra (Small).jpg

    Paph. concolor ‘Yellow Mist X Paph. concolor ’Hennessianum’ {Compact, creamy yellow flowers with speckles}
    Name:  concolor (Small).jpg

    Paph. delenatii X Paph. delenatii ’Pink Sky’

    How do I best care for these small seedlings?

    Very nice purchases! Good luck with the paphs, trying out new species, is what makes orchid growing interesting. (and challenging!)
