Paphiopedilum henryanum

birding_nut(6)October 23, 2011

Last year a long time orchid grower in our town passed away and her husband donated a bunch of her plants to our society. I took one of her plants, a Paphiopedilum henryanum, and got it to rebloom this year for the first time. Grown in my home in a west facing window behind venetian blinds, high light, and intermediate temps.

Great looking Paph species. I would like to try more paphs but they are not popular here. Can you think of any others that are as prolific as say Paph. Leeanum ? - Ian.

Thanks, everyone. My most prolific Paph is actually a hybrid, Paph. Rosy Egret (Paph. appletonianum x Paph. acmodontum). It is a VERY easy grower and the first Paph I ever recquired. The older it gets the better it gets, with multiple growths blooming at the same time. Here is a pic.

and the entire plant

Also, for a species, Paph. spicerianum is very easy for me to grow and bloom in the house...this year it has four growths with buds ready to open. Here is a pic of the flower...it is a line bred cross of 'Green Martian' and another clone that I can't remember the name of.
