    Talking Paphiopedilum delenatii (without Air Control)

    Normally the climate must be cold for blooming.It is amazing for me that it can provide 2 flowers in 1 spike with the open-air condition. ^V^
    The others are the selected good form and dark color.

    Cool. You have so many of these in bloom now. I think the one in the first photograph is my favorite. (I like the stripes on the pouch. )

    Cheers,

    What should I say?
    There is a very long story but I will narrate in short.
    Some pics are simply my memorial pictures that I have. The real plant does not have anymore.It does not mean that I cannot grow but there is a bad guy informed officers to arrest me as I own many illegal paphs. Without knowing the law of owning paphs at that time I have no choice, so I put all of my paphs (collected since I started to grow for over 15 years) to the trash can. Until there was a seminar about CITES, I asked an officer. She kindly help me to have license. Now all of my paphs are legal. As an orchid lover, I would like to share the beauty of flowers with the purpose of knowing new friend (for healing my feeling from bad treating experience in the past). With all of the kindness of people from here,it does complete my wish. Thank you very much for all kindly gentleness.

    Again a very nice collection. Very sorry to hear about your bad experience. It must have been heart-breaking to have to destroy all those paphs; at least you still have the photos to remind you of them.

    Thank you very much for you kind sympathy.
    This incident is very well known among Thai growers.
    I accept that I decided to give up growing orchids that time.
    Due to my respectful person as slipper orchid teacher,Mr. Krairit Vejvarut,the former royal Thai orchid society, encourages me to continue growing orchids. With the word that he said to me that my knowledge and ability will be very useful to another slipper orchid growers. According to his kindness, I maintain growing orchid and try to develop more skill and ability in order to express my gratitude towards my great teacher, who has already passed away. Rest in peace.
