    I found out which vendor has been giving me the millipedes after my last paph purchases from them. They are a grower that specializes in mostly paphs, though they sell many other genera, and I assume they are worrying much about millipedes in their paphs since they are in their pots and I think a reputable vendor would want to keep them pest free. so I shouldn't worry about them either. (maybe other species of millipedes are more dangerous)

    I found milipedes on some of the plants I have purchased in the past. Since then I repot any new purchases unless they are in bud. I grow my orchids indoors so any bugs could potentially jump from one plant to the other.... I rather be safe than sorry
