    maybe a little like neps. Rain water, loose orchid mix , only a little or no sphag, and the paph's need constant moister .
    you grow them setting in water about half way up the pot, medium to bright light not much direct sun, they can take some direct but you have to move them in to it a little at a time.

    You have an interesting collection.

    I traded for a blooming Phrag Grande many years ago and was told it was a big plant. It arrived in a 3 ft long box (if I remember correctly), which I thought was overkill until I opened it and saw how he almost had to fold it in half. They're amazing plants if you have a suitable place for such a tall plant. I don't and re-traded it before the next winter.
