Been watching this bloom from low spike til today, and couldn’t wait any longer to post.
I have two seedling. I can't wait for them to be blooming sized. Do you provide any seasonal variation in care?
Fragrance on this one?
I am by no means an expert in paphiopedilum culture, but I have been growing both parents in this hybrid (armeniacum and malipoense), and have kept them alive, and I read everything I can on the care of parvisepalum species. Paph armeniacum and Paph malipoense both respond well to a cool and drier winter rest, with bright light. In my care, in Manchester, UK, they are kept on an eastern-facing windowsill, where temperatures drop to 50 degrees F. I water them thoroughly, then let them go almost totally dry before watering again. I shall do the same with the hybrid between them.
I have attempted to detect a fragrance at different times of the day and night, and I get nothing. I am usually keenly aware of fragrances (good and bad).
Thanks for the info. I am not too off from your conditions in terms of temperatures. Hopefully mine will be as lovely as yours when they get around to blooming.
You are welcome, Darlene. One thing to bear in mind is that the parents are slow growers, and the buds take forever to grow and open, but they are worth the wait.
