    Default Paphio callosum semi alba or potentianum?

    Would like to share this beautiful species such a big flower looks like semialba of callosum and maybe potentianum opened about a week ago but the issue now I always noticed the stem is shot. I am thinking maybe the medium that I was used .. pumice stones is the culprit. Pumice stones are very good for the section of Brachy based on my observation. Now I have to change to the new medium lava rock I will wait and observe for the next 6 months to see the outcomes.

    Too bad about the damage Zain, it is a beauty! Always something to keep you on the lookout, but I am sure you will figure it out!

    Indeed Jack I'm hoping with the new medium it will change my perception later, I checked the roots system so far no evidence of healthy new roots although the plants looks great this is based on 10 pots which I already replaced with lava rocks.

    it is my understanding (correct or not) that callosum and potentianum are synonymous.

    There are are quiet a few varieties under callosum. I think Dr.Zainal is checking if this is a variety potentianum.

    Callosum very confusing so many variations, under my hand I have more than 5 types with different shape and size and smaller one too. Thanks Sriram.
