    Hi Guys,

    Is it possible to identify the plant if it is Druryi without bloom? The reason I am asking is, I received Paphs from a local seller (no idea of what species) saying that those are rare plants and has yellow flowers. After receiving I felt those are collected from forest. I feel the plants look very similar to the one shown here. And these plants started responding well when I moved to brighter light. If it is possible to identify I will post the pictures.
    Thanks,
    Kaarthiik

    the growth of paph. druiryi is quite tipical for this species. You write, your plant was callected from the forest. In India, in Kerala? The best post an picture.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response. I am not sure if it is collected from Kerala. It was a long travel! And this was purchased from a small vendor. It could be either from Kerala or Assam (similar environment of Kerala) .

    Please find the pics attached. I received it in COCO peat , I mixed some perlite and some leaf mould (neem leaf) and some clay balls and little charcoal. Now I am occasionally adding some used green tea.

    Please see the pictures and suggest me if I am doing any wrong. There is a slight pigmentation on leaves. I am not sure why it is. They are fertilized almost everyday with MSU (80 PPM of N). And with Protket (silicon solution) as with all orchids in RO Water. With a weekly flush of clean water.

    Attached the photos of one plant. I have 2, this is comparatively bigger.
    Thanks,
    Kaarthiik

    Country is India. But I am not sure if it is collected either from Kerala or Assam. Both states are having similar climate.
