    Zainal, the blooms are beautiful. I especially like the mottled leaves, such a pretty variation of green. I would almost grow this plant just for the leaves but the bloom is an additional bonus.

    Very beautiful callosum and barbatum. Though I can bloom the callosum I've not succeeded with barbatum. Congrats Zainal.

    I like your photos, Zainal.
    I have Paph. callosum, too. I am lucky with this species. Here in Germany it is not so difficult to bring to flower.

    Less than 1000 meter or 3000 feet so consider lowland but those from Mount Ophir more than 3000 feet really challenging very beautiful, strong color, just spike forming than aborted.
