' Jacob's Ladder '

This plant has the longest petals of any of our sanderianums, reaching 74 CM. in about a week after opening. An interesting fact is that the petals only lengthen in the night time, growing up to 12 CM a night for the first few days then gradually lengthening less each night until full size is reached. The petals do not grow at all during the day. It grows best very warm and with lots of water.

leucochilum ' Cirele Z '

This plant is from four generations of sibling crosses from plants originally imported by Mr. Nick Tannaci of San Jose California. Nick imported some of the finest plants of this wonderful species in the late 1970s and made many different sibling crosses to the delight of all Paphiopedilum growers. We have made more siblings and now the quality is uniformly good. These are very large flowers. We grow them very warm and with a lot of water, we feed very little as too much feed causes the plants to rot.
