    Yes limestone in the bottom third of the pot, mixture of charcoal, fine styrofoam, coarse river sand and shredded fern root; and top dressing of fine broken(pounded) cockle shells.

    Probably it's the cockle shell (kerang). The niveum, concolor, bellatulum, philippinense seem to love it too.

    I'm expecting 2 spikes this year - should be around late February or March. My appletonianum has a 3 inch spike at the moment.But what I'm looking foward to is the first blooming of my kolopakingii , a really huge plant.

    You're stonei plant is remarkable. It must have 10+ growths. My stonei is just starting to mature so it will be a while to see something like this. I will be nice to see your kolopakingii. I love paphio species but kolopakingii is just too big for me.

    I'll try but I think it would be better when it blooms and I think that's still a few months away.
