    Well, since I have your attention ... I do not know if some of them will be duplicates. If there are duplicates would there be any reason not to put them together in one larger pot?

    I dont see a reason why you couldnt, as long as they are not crowded on the upside and you still have the roots somewhat cozy in the pot. However unless it is an exact same clone i wouldn't as you could run the risk of mixing up your tags. Another problem would be introducing a virus or pest from one to the other. I have many duplicates and many divisions of the same plant and they all get potted up on there own. I also do not reuse old bark or water for the same reason above.
    To each is there own if they are healthy pest/disease free plants of the same exact clone id say sure go for it.

    Well, I got snookered. The 30 paphs which were described as chosen from mottled-leaf, species and multi-floral where all mottled-leaf hybrids, not even one primary hybrid i.e. grocery-store stock. They were also dropped shipped from some other vendor. The seller was unimpressed with my displeasure saying it was growers choice and I could send them back if I wanted. Live and learn. At least they will be easy to keep. And wouldn't you know. I already had only one paph, the Petula Pops. Now I have two!

    I would send them all back, and make sure this seller is known to all that they are not truthful in what they advertise!

    Well, I'd have to pay for the return shipping and only if they are well-packed and look good upon return would I get back the payment less shipping. I'm pretty sure based on my experience with them so far that they would not look good upon return so I'd be out double the shipping, all the money and the plants plus all the time to repackage them.

    My gut was telling me that it sounded too good to be true and I was right. I need to learn to listen to my instincts. Unfortunately, I need to repot all of them because they are in really old, big chunks of bark. They won't survive here in that.

    I did leave appropriate feedback.

    Then maybe it is a good thing you got them for an incredible low price for what you received.

    I think I got them pretty much for what they were worth. I guess this might make up for the fact that our one and only grocery store in town is closing. That's the place where I kept buying the rescue phals. Now, I have a bunch of rescue paphs that should tide me over until spring when I dive into my project to double the size of my indoor winter greenhouse.

    hehe If you are like me, you'll have fun with the rescues! I will say though that I actually ordered some "real" orchids from a great vendor and they are gorgeous plants that I am completely happy with. If, when you have a bigger green house and better weather, you want to order something spectacular, send me a PM and I'll let you know who I purchased from.

    Live and learn i guess, if this is from a certain auction site id say even with the high shipping it was well worth what you payed. You can always sell or gift ones you dont want. All in all id say it wasnt a bad deal, a bit of a misrepresentation on the sellers part but still good.
