    Sure. The only pure rothschildianum we have is 'Emma'. We grow her with the other strap leaf type paphs on the cooler end of the greenhouse in front of the kool-cell (water cooler). The humidity range is between 50% and 70% most days. Watering twice a week in the dry months with tap water and once every week in the cooler months. Feeding every other week along with all the other orchids. She grows in a small, redwood bark mix that we mix ourselves. She currently is in an 8 inch pot and has been divided a few times. We sold divisions of her when we were commercial growers. Now we just grow her for her blooms. Since we grow in a greenhouse, she gets filtered, bright light (probably around 1200 foot-candles range in summer and a bit less in the winter due to the angle of the sun.)

    Cheers,
    BD
