    Aha - isn't it fun to know the hybridizer???? I have a few paphs and phrags straight from the breeder and I love knowing the story behind the plant. I wonder why the lady who made it didn't register the cross herself? I do think you should take it to a show and let the judges talk about it to you - it's fascinating, no matter what happens.


    By the way - I've seen some pretty badly-staked plants win awards lately - as long as you have the bloom tied up so that it is erect, they seem impervious to the other aesthetics - at least they do in Atlanta. Can't figure that one out....

    WoW - that is Gorgeous! Congratulations!!!!

    What conditions do you grow it in? Does it get any direct sunlight on it at all? What do you feed it? Please? I am just getting my first paph (Hybrid Caliosum Hilo Fire x Hilo Quata) opening as I type....I'm very new at all this, and know I've done it wrong, but it has apparently forgiven me enough to bloom....today - or tomorrow - it's a little more open every hour after tantalizing me with a nice bud for about two months! YaaaaaaY! (decided I was under-watering it, soaked it for about three minutes this morning, set it to drain, and it's opening!)

    Thank you. I grow in a greenhouse. It gets bright filtered light. No direct sun at all - ever. I feed it a variety of fertilizers on a rotation throughout the year. Bright light will speed the process of your paph bloom opening up.

    cheers,

    Thank You!

    I spent about four hours reading yesterday, seriously! Just to get more confused - there seems to be no consensus on anything! So, I am just going to trust those - like you - with notable success. After awaiting my paph's bud opening forever, I tried what I read the experts said doing three days ago, and ended up with two leaves with ridges...(I'll post some pics, and Y'All can tell me what they mean).

    It's awesome that you can do this well. Thanks.

    So, from now on, I'll post to the "experts help newbies" section - this is just very exciting to me, to see your success - I have a miserably twisted stem, some deformed leaves - but a very nice-looking opening bud.....we shall see what happens from here....it has stalled in opening right now, but still looking good....

    I so hope you have a beautiful bloom, JayDee, there's nothing quite like seeing a beautiful paph start to bloom and then, after time, it will set the bloom and amaze you for weeks on end. They last a really long time 8-9 weeks has been the average for me.

    It looks so much like my Paph - bought it with no name or ID. It bloomed for 16 weeks - amazingly beautiful!
