CITES export Appendix I Hybrids (Paphs and Phrags)
One of the best parvi hybrids with large green-yellow flowers on tall stems. Slightly fragrant from the malipoense.
Intro:Paph. Norito Hasegawa is a primary parvisepalum hybrid between armeniacum and malipoense. This is one of the best of the parvi hybrids in that the flowers are large in size and have an excellent shape and color. The flowers are long lasting and have a pine scent. It is easy to grow and stays compact in plant habit.
Light:This plant prefers low to medium light with natural light levels being 750 to 2000 foot candles at peak noon hours. East window sills are good and the plant will also do well with artificial light culture. Grow 16 to 20 inches from fluorescent tubes and 4 to 5 feet from a 430 son agro HPS fixture.
P.L. Lights systems are a great way to provide artificial light to your orchids. See our P.L. Lights page for more information on this great product we offer.Humidity:50% or higher is ideal. The use of humidity trays or room humidifiers is beneficial.
We offer two products that can help increase humidity levels. The humidity tray offered in black or white, and the Mist Maker. Please click on the underlined text for more information on these products.Water:It is best to use rainwater, distilled or reverse osmosis water. Municipal water with a pH of 7.5 or lower can also be used. Water as the mix approaches dryness but do not allow the mix to become completely dry between watering.
Overwatering can cause several problems such as root rot and infectious bacteria/fungus in the potting medium. One product we offer that can help these problems if caught at an early stage is Phyton 27 bactericide and fungicide.Fertilizer:We highly recommend using Green Jungle Orchid Food, especially formulated to work with rain, distilled, reverse osmosis water or water low in alkalinity. Fertilize with Green Jungle every time you water if plants are planted in bark. Be sure to flush the mix with clear water only once per month to prevent fertilizer salt build up. For plants in moss or mounted on slabs feed every third or 4th watering as the moss holds a lot of nutrients.
GrowMore 20-10-20 Ureafree for municipal or well water. Use at the rate of ½ teaspoon per gallon. If using GrowMore with rain, distilled, or reverse osmosis water, add back in 5 - 10% municipal or well water to supply the necessary calcium and magnesium. Fertilize every other watering in the summer and every third watering in the winter.
Another fertilizer offered is: GrowMore 6-30-30 (Cymbidium and bloom boosting formula).Flowering:This plant typically blooms in the spring to summer months and produces one to two flowers that are 3 and a half to 4 and a half inches in size on a 12 to 20 inch tall flower spike. The flowers are colored in green to greenish yellow and are fragrant smelling like pine needles. This is a compact plant that produces large flowers.Repotting:It is best to repot this plant in the spring or fall months using a medium grade bark mix. Keep dry the first few days after repotting. This will allow any damaged roots to heal and harden off. Do not overpot.
We offer several different types of potting medium. Here are direct links to what we believe to be some of the best potting mediums available for orchids: Orchids Limited bark mix, New Zealand sphagnum moss, coco husk, coco peat, sponge rock, charcoal, tree fern fiber and cork slabs for epiphytic plants.
