    This is Phillip's P. lowii, as of a few days ago. As I said, it looked dreadful when he got it and has all along for several months now - not a leaf on it, although I would say that I don't know that it should eve have any. It's been vacationing in our favorite nursery for 2 months now, and, although the roots still look a bit funky, I think it's typical, and it as a bloom! It is kept in low to medium light, in a slightly cooler but very humid part of the greenhouse.

    Thank you Jenn!

    Well, an aquarium with a self watering epiweb panel is next on my list, just gotta find some space. Hmmm...I wonder if one of my improvised Edwardian cages would do (I just get a transparent vase and turn it upside down on top of the plant, perfect "pick me up" for tiny ones).

    Thought it must be a KS but the greenish shade and the straight spike made me wonder.

    Will try to be good on Wednesday and take more pics!

    Thank you again
    Laura

    Whoa Maura, this one is a cutie! Silly me, I was actually talking about my paphiopedilum lowii, I saw the picture in your signature ages ago, before I even became a member, and I decided that I shall get me one no matter what. Thought you might know lots about them, since it seems to me that they are amongst your favorites

    Thank you for the pics, really cool one, nice "beak"

    LOL...I thought you were talking about a Phalaenopsis lowii too! I don't have a Paph lowii, so I can't help you there.

    Maura, I don't think yours looks abominable at all! It's a deciduous plant that naturally drops leaves in its habitat, so it's frequently in bloom without any foliage. I've seen pics of it mounted with no leaves and a couple of blooms, just like yours. And those roots look quite healthy to me...I think you've got a great lowii there!! Love it!! Give it another month or two...it should pop out a leaf for you if it gets warm enough temps.

    Nice one!

    Funny - I did think about whether you were talking about a Phal or Paph lowii, but assumed the Phal. There are a number of great Paph. lowii photos on OT - and I think I have a few posted, if you run a search for it on here. I am still, after a year and a half of growing and studying orchids, and slippers in particular, learning by trial and effort, with a lot of failure thrown in for good measure. Paphs. in general like about Phal.-level light, although the green-leaved paphs, like lowii, seem to prefer lightly higher indirect sun. They also are notorious for needing to stay damp but not wet, and crown rot, if you leave water in the center of the leaves, is a killer. A beautifullly grown Paph. lowii is a wonder to see, though. I have adored mine.
