Dendrobium kingianum. We keep this plant during the frost free season at
a light shaded place in the open garden.

 I must  not  let  my  plant  see  this  - it  would  be  so ashamed!  Your plant  is  magnificent, Rudi - the  scent  must  be  lovely too!

Maggi and Roma, thank you for your friendly comments. I think, that the stay in the open garden is responsible
for the good amount of flowers, or different clones make the difference.

Try keeping the plants on the dry side over the cooler months, water sparingly to prevent excessive bulb shriveling.

Paphiopedilum villosum (I think) opened its first flower, 4 more to come after years of growing. The potting mix is inspired by Anders, and contains grodan cubes and expanded clay.

My P. isigne however is getting smaller every year and refuses to make roots in any medium. I wish Paphs were more widely available like in the 80's and 90 when you could pick them up in the supermarket!

I know less than nothing about House Orchids so I wonder if someone could help me (or actually help my Brother) by telling us what these are please? My Sister in Law, who sadly is no longer with us, had these for some years in her kitchen and my Brother would like to keep them going if he can.
