    Default Paph. Toni Semple

    I've been obsessing over this plant and wondered how hard is it to grow? It will be my second most expensive plant and I want to be successful growing it. I don't have a greenhouse but grow other paphs in a west facing window. I use RO and have been able to bloom phals and my bulldog paphs are thriving. Should I push the button and place the order? Any advice will be appreciated.

    Toni Semple is a vigorous hybrid and probably a bit easier to manage in a window in the house than the Paph lowii parent - a bit lower light, a bit smaller, a little more tolerant of constant indoor warmth. If you have the room and have success with bulldogs you've got a good chance of success with Toni.

    I have these along side of bulldogs in my greenhouse. If you do well with those, "Toni" will be a walk in the park.

    Thanks, I'm excited to get it. It was photos you posted that made me want one. I found it on your website. By the way, your photos are amazing.

    Received my order today and my plant is beautiful. I'm so impressed with the way the plant was wrapped for shipping. It came across country, took five days and is in bud! I highly recommend First Ray's.
