    Beautiful. How do you grow this paph? What is the culture you use to get such pretty blooms?

    Cheers,

    I use the raintree's leaves mixed with perlite.
    It is just for 3 - 5 months and need to repot.
    right now I use only sandstone.^V^

    You have such a fine collection of philippinense. Really envy you.

    Thanks for the tip of using raintree leaves. Does your raintree refer to Samanea saman or our locally named 'Five O'clock Tree' aka 'Raintree' ? ( Picture attached ). I assume you use the dried leaves. Any special treatment before using? Do you also use them on your other paphs?

    Yes Yes Yes!That's the tree I mentioned.^V^
    I use the dried leaves
    Just collect and put it in pile to let the leaves decayed
    Then I put the decayed leaves mixed with perlite
    I use this material to grow all paphs.
    and get the flowers as I posted
    Now I grow with only sandstone.
    The plants are not much beautiful.
    They don't provide me much flowers.T_T
    I am thinking of new material to use for growing paphs.

    P.S
    I calculate the humidity between material used and the size of pots in growing paphs.

    The disadvantages are hardly to control of watering and easy to get rotten.
    Please be aware of these.
