Paph. Charlene, an easy to grow primary hybrid of two sequential blooming species was created and registered by Duane and Judy Erdmann in 2002. We are very delighted receive a limited number of this stunning remake from the premier Paph hybridizer Mr. Hung Sheng Bear of Taiwan. Mr. Bear is the past president of Taiwan Paphiopedilum Society (TPS). He has the best Paphiopedilum species collection in Taiwan, if not all of Asia.


Both parents were awarded a Silver Medal (SM) from TPS. Paph. haynaldianum is an easy to grow multifloral species. The clone ‘Bear’ has tall spikes with large, colorful flowers that are produced one at a time in the spring through summer. Paph. liemianum is a sequential blooming species from the Indonesian islands. Plants produce one flower at a time, but continue to bloom on the same spike for months. Mature plants can continue to flower for over a year. Many people have reported flowering for more than two years on a single spike! Paph. liemianum reduces the size of the leaves in this hybrid and makes it compact and increases the blooming period. We expect the flowers to have a green dorsal with veining, a pink pouch and petals, as well as spots from the Paph. haynaldianum parent.


Paphs detest soggy growing medium; pot in well-draining media. Grow these plants in intermediate light and warm temperature with high humidity and good air circulation. Water twice per week for best results. As with all Paphs, its roots are sensitive to salt buildup from excess fertilizer which causes leaf tips to turn brown. It is a good practice to flush the medium with fresh, clean water once a month and repot Paphs in fresh media every year. Excellent for growing under lights or on a windowsill. Plants are weather tolerant, pest and disease resistant. Highly recommended for beginners and Paph collectors.
