Default Currently blooming slippers -Phrag Randy Macdonald and Paph godefroyae

My Phrag Randy Macdonald is in bloom with a branching spike Its and vigorous grower that has grown into a nice clump from a single growth for me. I just divided it for a forum member and the plant still continued to spike.
Phrag Randy Macdonald = Phrag Hanne Popow x Phrag Sedenii
Phrag Hanne Popow = besseae x schlimii
Phrag Sedenii = longifolium x schlimii


Paph godefroyae is a small paph species with nicely tessellated leaves. Very compact and also has a dwarved bloom because of that.

Very beautiful - both of them, Fren! I am impressed with the Paph godefroyae. I love speckled blooms like that. I have heard that they can be picky in their cultural requirements?

Beauties, both of them! I love small Paphs and will consider godefroyae as a possible future purchase. Thanks for sharing.

Love the paph, my favorite genera. I haven't seen too much of this species. Nice job.

yes they can be fussy, or different. Root rot is an issue with these paphs with some sources say is because of poor water quality. Also they don't like to be repotted. Some of the best brachypetalum growers specialize in only this section of paphs.

Thanks, Fren. I've got a couple of ones that are brachy crosses. But I've not been brave enough to try a one of these species yet. Perhaps I should remedy that, and see how ones does for me. Thanks for sharing your pics!!
