Can you tell us their names, please? If we know exactly what we're talking about we can give you better advice. As for the bent foliage, even though it is unsightly it will probably continue to...

We used to be able to buy tree fern poles, but I haven't seen them for sale in some time. I would think a tube made out of hardware cloth would work (not the prettiest) or some assemblage of cork...

Hi, Bean

Sorry about your first Paph. bloom turning out poorly like this. No, it isn't normal for a Paph. to bloom like this but they do occasionally throw some aberrant growths. Your plant is a...

I think the thing that strikes me most is that you say "Suddenly 8 or 10 years ago I couldn’t get any blooms" and yet the plants are only three or four growths. In that length of time I would expect...

I alluded to, but did not say explicitly, that I am an indoor grower. The plant is on a bakers rack about 1ft. inside of a Southwest facing 6 ft. doorwall. Humidity generally runs around 50-60%.
