    Default NOID Paphs

    Received this as a Christmas gift today from my boss and his wife, I was speechless. It appears to be 4 different types planted together, 3 in bloom and one budding. I don't know a lot about paphs, I have a few and have tried to follow the types which should do okay for me in Florida.The type given to me today seem to be what I used to call "bulldog" paphs which were considered cooler growing. This was from a local florist, but I've worked in flower shops where we've sold plenty of plants that would never rebloom in Florida. I hope someone can give some input on what they think about growing these, there were no name tags, the blooms are quite large. I apologize for the photos not the best and it doesn't help my living room is green.Name:  paph 1 (Copy).jpg

    They glimmer and they shine. They look almost ready to do a fan dance for ya.....................Sorry that I can't help with the cultural information, but what a neat gift. I had a boss that gave me a turkey once and a occasional dinner or bonus, but never beautiful orchids such as these. AL

    Wow! Beautiful, i just bought some a few months back, in fact one is in bud now. They have this tag Green Complex paphs, i grow mine in a shade house. My growing condition is cool type. The nursery i got them told me they were imported from Malaysia. I think you can grow them there.

    I've seen them bloom only in the highlands.

    Tone is hard to display when typed ESPECIALLY if you don't know the person typing. Just want to say sincerely no offence. However, orchids are not usually "complicated" they are a "low requirement" plant. Complications arose once ppl decided to uproot them from their natural environment where they use to thrive. I admit my guilt in this since even I think they look better in my home. They are just so beautiful. Unfortunately, if you want any plant to THRIVE the best thing is to find out everything about its original culture and mimic it. Otherwise it takes adjusting and readjusting and ....... lot more work.
