Default Mottled leaf paphs or?

Iím basically trying to decide after some research wether itís worth trying to cultivate paphs from the section barbata or sigmatopetalum species like callosum and a few other warm growing types that donít need as drastic of a night temperature drop to induce flowering . My room stays about 73-76 during the day and down to 65 at night is about the lowest 50 percent humidity . I was just wondering if itís worth trying to work with the warmer types or if itís basicaly a fools errand as far as blooming and Iíd be better off with warmer growing stuff.

What have you tried and what have you ruled out?

There's lots of misinformation regarding Paphs (well I think that's true for orchids in general but I'll limit the context here) and their care. My growing conditions sound pretty similar to yours in regards to temperatures, and yet I have lots of success with Paphs from a variety of sections. It's a good thing too, because I love Parvisepalums and if I believed everything I read and heard, I might come to the conclusion that they are "cool growers" which is not necessarily true.

I don't know your situation, but if you're interested in a certain Paph (or certain sections) it might just be worth a try. There are definitely some species that are more difficult than others to grow and bloom, but with a little research and perhaps some trial and error I bet you'd be able to figure it out.

I think part of the confusion about "cool growing orchids" is that there is a big difference between "tolerates cool" - which typically are quite happy with intermediate or even warm conditions even if they will put up with winter chill, and "requires cool" - even those often will tolerate quite a bit of daytime heat if they can cool off somewhat at night.
