    I really love angthongs for the pristine white and that fabulous substance. You must get your flasks in... Thailand?

    Thanks for posting . A long time since I have seen such pretty brachys.

    @Delphi - I've got the angthong alba but it appears to be a very slow grower. Had it for almost three years now but is still small and not flowered yet. It is currently three times the growth size when I first got it. Unlike the other paphs I have around which are growing well ..... or is my environment not conducive for this particular plant? Hmmm ....

    Got mine from Taiwan too ...

    Hi Zainal,

    No secrets, just the right growing conditions and perhaps the quality of the flask.
    18 months is considered fast as normally the other brachys are between 2 to 3 years.

    beautiful alba paphs! I'd have trouble telling the difference between the brachy species if they were all albas.
