    Default Paph fairrieanum blooms

    One of our orchid society members grew these from seed and I was able to get several... don't ask me why I got several, since I don't have room for all that I currently have and one would have been enough!!!!! Sorry that the pics are a bit hazy but the camera was cold and the GH hot and humid.....

    Tim, my plants aren't very large as this pic demonstrates. Some chids just aren't made for everyone. I can't grow anything from the Oncidium Alliance while others grow beautiful plants and get them to flower!!!!!

    OH WOW!! I just love fairrieanum I picked up one on my trip to Hawaii over the holidays that was blooming and it has 2 new growths that are coming along well. She got repotted about 2 weeks ago and had gobs of healthy, growing roots . I am hopeful she will bloom again later this year.

    err... Howard, I have to have this species... after all it is a Paph

    these are the only species I need and I would have all the species Paphs -
    acmodontum, adductum, anitum, argus, bougainvilleanum, bullenianum, ceremensis, exul, gigantifolium, glanduliferum, graduliferum, kolopakingii, nigritum, papuanum, parnatanum, sangii, vietnamense, violascens

    18 to go (although 3 are already on order), and then maybe I can register as the National Registry for Paphs

    btw, those three plants look amazingly healthy!

    Those are gorgeous Howard. I'm trading for a couple seedlings of these soon, I sure hope they look as good as yours.
