    Hi george. Not bad price. Typical for hardware stores orchids. I think the Orchids Limited retailer is a good place and quite nice on prices. I may do some looking there. Thanks for the pricing info.

    There's lots of good places to buy Paphs online. For instance, I've always had good luck with Hausermann ( http://www.orchidsbyhausermann.com/ ) or you can simply browse thru the index at the Orchid Mall ( http://www.orchidmall.com/plants.htm ).

    One thing to be aware of is that many orchids listed are not ready to bloom. You would want a plant listed as 'BS' (blooming size - which means it should bloom when its blooming season next comes around) or 'NBS' (near blooming size - meaning that it has a year to 18 months to go before it blooms). 'Seedlings' can be good sized plants but they aren't going to bloom for a couple of years.

    A lot of people think that the ideal plant is NBS because it is much cheaper than BS and will be completely acclimated to your conditions by the time it blooms - giving maximum time in bloom. (Of course, you have to be willing to wait those 18 months.)

    Good luck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thank You for the great info Merlin! I will probably aim for a near blooming size plant, I can sure wait 18 months no problem. Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
