    The Cat with no name...

    I'm too Pink for my own good!

    My first Cat. (interesting story with this one.. got this plant maybe five/six years ago, gave it to my mum, and then I took a division back)

    Anyways, Cheers

    All those flowers are from the division, Tim? That must have been some huge plant your mom had. Very pretty!

    Thanks everyone... I'm pretty chuffed about this one, seeing as I'm suppose to be a Paph addict!

    Matt: There's five flowers but each one is only 4 inches across.

    RSJ: It has a rose smell (but not very strong).

    Jules: This plant has 1 leafless, 2 leafed and the flowering bulb. My mum's has a couple of extra bulbs on hers (but not flowering ). It was actually a shock to get so many flowers as well, guess it likes being on top of the barbecue...

    I bought it as a NBS 5/6 yrs ago, and after doing all that multigrowth thing, I got this division about a year and a half ago, maybe almost two, when there was only 2 p/b + new growth.

    Well, it might not have a name, but I think it's a keeper...

    Cheers
    Tim
