    Paphioboy thank you very much for the info, I will take care accordingly I hope it will rebloom again for the future.

    Hi Yew I do believe since you are very near to the Indochina you dont have any problem with this species but dont try Paph. armeniacum very very hard refuse to bloom and stunted.

    Hi Lynn Magic Lantern is the crossing between ( micranthum and delenatii) the flower sometimes almost similar with micranthum depend which parent is more dominant one thing the petals of micranthum always very small as compared to M. Lantern. Thanks.

    Don't quote me on this, Lynn, but I think Paph. Magic Lantern is a cross between Paph. micranthum and Paph. delenatii - but both are parvisepalums and the cross has much the shape of micranthum. Good spotting!

    Thank you for great answers, Zain & Maura! I like those very big lips & pink color, very unique. I googled & found out that both Paph.micranthum & Paph.magic lantern are all lovely, can't choose between them, they are quite similar, so I got confused ^^

    I'm beginning to get into the world of slipper orchids, just found out recently that there are SO many hybrids, all gorgeous and beautiful,
    but not all can be grown here. I'm more familiar with Brachypetalum-I have some Paph.godefroye,Thanks Yew for making me knowing that word
    when you commented on my former thread . They are native here and can be grown at the very low elevator above sea level where I live

    Hi Lynn the easiest paph to grow in lowland are bellatulum, concolor, niveum also from Coclopetalum like chamberlianum, liemianum glaucophyllum primulinum, moquettianum they are all very easy to bloom and take care.
