Dr Gunalan, welcome to the RVO forum. Zainal, please get the doctor to introduce himself and post some photo's. Thank you, Joe
Paph sanderianum thrives in half the normal light for most Paphs. In normal Paph lighting its growth will slow considerably. And don't forget the calcium it wants to simulate those limestone cliffs. Pulverized egg shells are a good source.
The species was exceedingly hard to germinate for professional growers until recent years. I suspect we still don't have many hardy seedlings out there, which is why we see more hybrids than mature species plants.
Yours is an inspiration, Zainal!
I can't wait to add this beauty to my collection !!!! I love the long long long curly petals of the species and it's hybrids. Congratulation on your blooms !!!!
Very beautiful, bravo!!
