Paph. malipoense v. hoepli probably a malformation of Paph varieties. malipoense v. jachii, as I grow in moderate light, irrigation 100ppm reverse osmosis, pH 6.2, 1/2 fertilizer, sensitive to salts.
Wow what a beauty Elio!
Looks awesome. I have one in spike and is very slow to develop the spike.
Very pretty! I love the long spike and held high flower!
What happens if it gets too much salts? Like what are the symptoms? I have a couple of Paphs that are doing well and one that is really struggling and I know our water quality isn't the best (alkaline, very hard, lots of minerals). I'm trying to decide if I should continue to try Paphs, or if I need to find another way to water them. I just grow in my home, nothing fancy.
Some particularly sensitive, xa is the armeniacum, after fertilization proceed to leaching, x remove the excess salts.
Currently we are experiencing a type of bark, Orchiata, bark of Pinus radiata in New Zealand production, it seems that does not allow or at least delays the accumulation, but it is yet to be proven.
With regard to the irrigation water to get by reverse osmosis, 100ppm, pH 6.2, x the Paph bellatulum ph 6.5 - 6.9, or you can use rainwater, rainwater 3 parts and 1 tap part.
In the house you may put a container with water and a network over im so that the vessel does not come in contact with water, the evaporation will provide moisture to the plant.
