    Default Paph bellatulum

    This 'egg in a nest' paphio is one of my favourite paphs. It is so cute.It has been opened for more than 2 weeks but I didn't have time to take pictures of it. There are already some damage by rain. If there is a fault in this paphio, it is the short flower stem.

    I'm seriously wondering why I do not have these little tiny guy yet...besides I like the shape of the bloom I also like that it has a short flower stem. Love it!

    River pebbles at the bottom, and mixture of charcoal, small pieces of styrofoam , coarse river sand, shredded fern root and top dressing of crushed cockle shells (kerang). I used to kill my brachys by over potting them but now I pot them in 3 inch pots and they love that.
