Paphiopedilum barbatum var. nigritum - several new growths since blooming last year (at about the same timeframe as this year).

The cluster of great looking plants are doing you proud. Are they in an enclosure? Just answered my question...you do have a terrarium I recall. A1 grower!

just wanted to add that the bloom progression is so cool - really captures all the time spent patiently waiting for the flower to open.

ps: is that an Ornithocephalus in the background?

Good eye - Ornithocephalus manabina. Have been growing out 5 different species of this genus for awhile.

Appreciate the compliment! This has been a very hardy Phap, and it has done well in a terrarium (under artificial lighting).

Thanks!
Growing them in terrariums. I have a couple open-front enclosures that I'm in the process of reorganizing. Added a set of glass doors to one of those enclosures to add a little more humidity. Now it holds anywhere from 50-70% RH.

I'll probably remove the P. barbatum from its present location into this enclosure (with the glass doors) after flowering. Will be in a dimmer location than where it is now. I will also add some recently mounted divisions (of other miniatures) into that set-up. Just a temporary 'holding container' right now, but I'm in the process of transforming it into a more permanent set-up.

Sliding glass doors added (has increased RH about 20%)
