    Default latest Paphs just arrived from Belgium

    I just received 4 new Paphs from Belgium. I have such a nice colleague who keeps on going to Brussels and she offers to bring back Orchids for me

    Anyways, the latest are the following and you can see their pictures below:

    1- Paph robinsonii in spike! I cant wait for it to open!

    2- Paph huonglanae(I know there is a dispute about the name. It is like emersonii)

    3- Paph micranthum var.eburneum

    4-Paph micranthum

    Do you guys have any specific culture advice on any of those?

    Thanks for looking

    Nice plants! Your micranthum seem to have shorter stolons than mine, which is good!
    I am envious of your Paph micranthum var.eburneum and huonglanae. huonglanae has very good form compared to regular emersonii, I think

    Thanks Fren Regarding the micranthums, since the older growths have already bloomed in both, from your experience, how long would the new growths that you can see in the pictures mature? I have warm temps and 75% humidity. I know it is difficult to tell..

    Thanks

    I failed at blooming micranthum this year due to bud blast...

    but I don't think they'll take too long to mature, the growths are half mature already. i think they will bud the coming fall to spring.
