Default How to grow Multifloral Paphs .....?

I would like to hear from other growers of Multifloral Paphs to see how easy (or difficult) they find them to be. I don't want to invest in any multifloral Paphs if they are difficult to grow and bloom . I grow on windowsills (SE/SW exposure) and would like to grow them again. I once had a Paph. Berenice grow and bloom, so I'm thinking that they are not so difficult ......

Any thoughts ?

I, like you, find them fairly easy. (I grow them exclusively in S/H culture.)

I have a couple and they seem to bloom pretty easily for me. I'm growing under lights though. I have often admired Berenice. In fact I almost bought one at the Pacific Orchid Expo a few weeks ago. They seem to do well with bright light and you really need to pay attention to water. I have found my William Ambler to be very thirsty.

Those are my principles and if you don't like them......I have others.

I only have 2 and they are easy, even my mature sanderianum is easy to care for, just slow to grow. (Sanderianum seedlings can be more finicky though.) You just need more space and patience for multiflorals.
