Default Now blooming: Paph Dark Master x Macabre

The full tag lists this as "Dark Master 'Velvet Prince' x Macabre 'Redstone'" and we had to talk about boundaries when it first came home, given that dramatic name. Bought as a fan with a bud in progress. If this is impossible to reflower, don't tell me!

With a name like that I would have thought "all black" or that deep red they consider black in flowers. I love this stripy/ spotted pattern. It seems really "turn of the century" (19th to 20th). Paphs are fairly easy. Easier than phalaenopsis. The only thing you can really kill them with (care wise) is not watering them. There are a lot of good guides and explainations. (Oh, one thing I learned between when I had orchids before and orchids now is that window light is not always sufficient. I got a good grow light and have them both in the window and under the grow light).

That's a really nice one!!! The weirder looking the Paph, the more I like it.


Optimist - Funny, I find Paphs more difficult that Phals. They grow ok it seems, but I only get blooms every 2-4 years....
