Paph orchids should be watered generously and kept damp (not wet). Since they do not have pseudobulbs, the plants use their roots for water and nutrient storage, therefore the roots should never be alowed to completely dry out. When potting, use a small bark mix that will retain water a bit longer than something like an oncidium that needs to dry out quickly before being watered again.

    These type Paphs generally do well in 'average' temps. 70-85 or so degrees Fahrenheit daytime and going a bit cooler at night with fairly high humidity 40 - 70 %. They appreciate lots of air movement so to avoid problems with water that gets on the leaves.

    Hope this helps!

    Very lovely Bruce. Good job blooming it. While I have your attention, just wanted to brag a little. My desert Rose is going to bloom, thanks to your good culture advice....so thanks Bruce.

    Thanks for the info Bruce. That"s the environment that I have set up for them so hopefully in time I will get to show it off when in bloom.

    great job blooming it Bruce! I've been swamped lately but it is of course nice to see one of my plants make it to a great home! I can't remember if this was from the old strain or new strain--is it fragrant?
