    Wink Paph. Amelia Hart Alexander

    This one wouldn't stay in the store...lol. It's fuzzy little self talked me into adopting it. I should have gotten a good pic of the plant too...it is a healthy three fan plant. Okay, will the specialists of these please tell me what is the highest temp this one can handle? It is a primary cross between Paph. chamberlainainum X Paph. primulinum. Any care advice will be appreciated.

    What a sweetie. I love it! A little advice on it's culture. Since it has primulinum in it give it some crushed oyster shells in it's growing medium once a year. I get the oyster shells at work. I clean them good and boil them. I then crush them using a hammer. I use the crushed oyster shells on most of my paphs and have great results with growth and bloom.

    Crushed oyster shell? No problem. I know exactly where to get a few of those. Thank You...

    Very beautiful, Connie. I have glaucophyllum and a chamberlainainum and both can tolerate temps in the 90's F but I don't grow a primulinum which I understand require lower temps. So your plant would be classed as an 'intermediate' to warm, I guess

    Thank you. I was wondering how that was determined.
