    I like both...they are very pretty. I was wondering, why do you have them in a pot within a pot? Is that to help them stay moist?

    I can see Joseph you like Paph. Godefroyae's and you have done a fine job raising these. Your Paph. Niveum also looks quite happy. Are these cool/intermediate Temp. growers or warm growers? Thanks for posting! AL

    These are such lovely slipper orchids, Joseph. Nicely grown and photographed as well. Good job!

    Cheers,

    Same treatment and growing conditions so I just stick to brachys. They are all warm growers.

    You know I like all your godefroyae but that niveum is pretty nice too - however, I can't help noticing that the mottling on the leaves of the niveum aren't very prominent. Is that due to the lighting?

    Yes, the mottling on the leaves is absent. This is not due to sunlight as the others growing by the side. I am not sure what caused it as the others from the same flask do not look like this.
