    LOLO

    I think haynaldianum is the most beautiful of all multifloral Paph species and they are a little smaller than lowiis. Get a haynaldianum if you're limited on space.

    It is very closely related to lowii.

    Thank you, Pete.

    So, I have these upstairs windows....same side of house as the bay, but not a bay - just two south facing. I'm really not sure they'd work as overflow space...

    sigh...I am really coveting Gilda's house lately.

    you really like those tricky little names don't you? This afternoon you were after me to get a warscewiczianum. (yes, I copied and pasted)

    I think it should grow and bloom fine at your south west facing window and with supplementary lighting. Only you can find out if they will do well or not in that condition but I think it should be ok.

    This species is very closely related to lowii. Now have I converted you into a Paph/Phrag species snob yet?

    Yes, I know some of those species have wild names and most of those species are named after the people who discovered them, some more than a hundred years ago.

    you're getting close - I just need to find them at reasonable prices now...

    re: names - you know I got some of that from Orchid Fever - Does anyone know of a really comprehensive history of orchids that I could read? I'd really love to read more about the beginnings of our obsession, 100 years ago. Very curious, but not quite curious enough to read "Origin of Species." I'd really like a history of the collecting that went on 100 years ago. That fascinates me. Must be the museum background - we had a crazy founder of our museum who collected all sorts of things less than ethically....(particularly Native American grave goods - I did the NAGPRA summary so I have all sorts of stories about what we would consider today to be illegal collecting.)

    Oh! back to the topic - how big is Kovachaii compared to say, Besseae?

    Heather,

    I don't know of any orchid history book to recommend, I don't think it has even been written by anyone yet, as far as I know. Actually orchids were first discovered way back almost 3000 years ago in China and the first orchid book was written by an emperor.

    Phrag kovachii is a brand new discovery, it is the find of the century. The plants are illegal to own here in the US until they are legally imported, I guess.

    A kovachii bloom is HUGE, bigger than a man's hand. Do a search in google and you'll find a few pictures available online.
