I have studyed cell culture of Phalenopsis when I was a student, 4 or 5 years before. In my lab, I have a friend who grow Paphiopedilu and I was going to be interested in Paph. I 'm growing this plant, Paph. concolor for 8 years. This is the first Paph that I have bought in gardening center when I was a student.


mrG5.6~6.6AcrG3.8~3.4Akr2.3~2.9AoG3.3~4.8AkG4.2~1.6cm. NS is not so huge because the petal developing forward. The high of plant is Vcm and the length of stem is Rcm. I fell it is not so big compareing to Paph. concolor in China, although I have seen it in Photo only. But I love this plant because I 'm growing for so long . This plant make me to begin growing Paph. But I don't have so much money and I can not buy enough. So I buy young plants like seedling that are inexpensive. It will take about 4 or 5 years to flower. And I grow them in 4 m2 grennhouse of plastic film. In the green house, there are about 50 plants in 1 or 2 inch pot. Now I'm very interested in Brachypetalum and Pervisepalum species and their hybrids.
