Is Paph parishii hard to grow?
I've been looking at the new listings of my favorite ebay seller, and he has a Paph parishii for sale. Love the blooms, and am very tempted to get one!!
But....how difficult is it to grow? I have little experience with paphs (owned 2 for less than a year, then they got lost in the mail- it's a long story!)
From what I read on internet/Orchidwiz, this one takes higher light than most paphs, pure water recommended, hates sour medium, and apparently needs a cool winter(??). For those of you who grow/know it, would you recommend it as a first paph?
Also would you consider a 2 growth plant blooming size? The Ebay description says it is, but I've read on internet that they need to get quite large before blooming.
Thanks for your help!!
