    thanks :-)

    I've never had them before this - are their roots supposed to be a little fuzzy? Their potting material looks a little ... old ... and once they finish blooming they're getting a re-pot.

    Paph roots are fuzzy! They are tan and hairy, where many other orchid roots are white or gray and smooth.

    Unless you mean fuzzy as in "covered with mold"..

    Hehe, nope - fuzzy as in like Nepenthes chaniana x veitchii leaves. I was kind of worried there because I have a bunch of Phals so their roots were confusing me.

    Good to know, thanks guys .

    So we get a warning that a bloom is coming but don't get to see the actual flower?
    All the best,
