    Default Paph. Ma Belle PHOTO

    (bellatulum 'Dalmation' x maliopense 'Spring Green')
    light fragrance, not sure what it reminds me of.



    Registered in 1992, Paph. Ma Belle is the delightful primary hybrid grex between bellatulum and malipoense. The flowers are very large in relation to the size of the compact-growing plants, up to 5" across, and are typically green with mahogany patterning. Flower shape and petal stance are highly variable, from markedly cupped to almost perfectly flat. Some plants will inherit the weak stems of the bellatulum parent, while others may feature a light fragrance from the malipoense parent. Paph. Ma Belle appreciates bright filtered light, intermediate temperatures, and a light topdressing of crushed oyster shell. Well-grown plants are frequently bifloral.

    Hi, I am new in here and have already fallen in love with paphs - thanks to your beautiful photos. You guys are not only expert growers, but great photographers as well. May I ask what kind of camera you are using?

    Your paph is beautiful! I have only one, called Supersuck Eureka. What amazes me about this plant is, that it has been in bloom now for 4 ms.!

    If any of you are growing Cypripedium I would very much appreciate your advice on how to grow this orchid. I understand they are quite expensive (mine was a gift) so I don't want to lose it.

    Helga.
