    Paph. druryi is growing only in Kerela, it's my knowledge. My plant is quite similar to yours, just the leaves are harder. Maybe you have give your plant a sunny place.

    Thanks a lot for your suggestion. Summer here started. Light intensities are growing!
    Will wait for the bloom, and I remember that seller mentioned that the bloom time would be September -October - Early winter.

    Thanks,
    Kaarthiik

    Mietak - Most probably its not druryii ( Its almost no were in wild to collect ). It might be paphiopedilum insigne or villosum.

    Kaarthiik - where you living in kerala.?

    I am sure it is not insigne (I have few of these plants) it could be Villosum by looks but my plant is liking SUN and growing now faster pace than in winter. Totally 3 plants were taken, 12 with me and 1 with a friend, he too observed good growths when moving to more sunny area. I am in Delhi area now and the temperatures are at 42 C. Greenhouse temps are around 30 to 35 C. I too read that this was extinct in Wild. But nature is so complex to understand. And I am not 100% sure if it is collected from wild. I got these with some others in a box, when opened they are in wild shapes... rather than tamed as happens when purchased from regular growers. Seller said it was a very rare one with Yellow flowers that comes in September or October. I received this plant in Last July (up to Sept I kept in low light) and from then I am trying to identify it.

    I have seen pics of this species looking like this, but my own plant has flowers much nearer , say, insigne apart from the distinctive colouring. Perhaps its a matter of the age of the flowers, since i took mine off to take to a breeder to use the pollens, before the flower was too old.
    Incidentally I saw that somone was asking a question about that point - i have not joined that thread as i am away from home ( in/on Mallorca, a Mediterranean island ) and the hotel wifi is slow. But my belief is that the pollen ripen after a few days, but the stigmatic surface is only receptive after a couple of weeks or more - in paphs, at least.

    An in situ video of Paph. druryi I found on the net. Paph. druryi has thick coriaceous leaves and enjoys a lot of light. It is found at an elevation of 1000 to 1500 msl and being quite close to the Equator at about 8N it must receive quite a lot of rainfall from the monsoons as well as by condensation. It is still found in the wild but the area is highly protected as it is a bio diversity hotspot.

    Prejith, thanks a lot for your link to this video. Unfortunately my plant is not so beautiful like this one in the nature. Good to know, the the growing area is highly protected. My plant is not a wild collection, that I know.

    You're welcome Mietek. Nice to see people growing our native orchids around the world. druryii is largely inaccessible here. The only ones around are divisions from private collections. It is distinct in that it is the western most limit for the Genus Paphiopedilum and is roughly 2000 km away from any other known Paph species.
