    Default Are these buds normal?

    This is a Paph. liemianum x dellenatii thought I bought in bud in July of 2008 and it bloomed for about one month or so. Just today I noticed what seem to be buds emerging directly out of the center. Is this normal? It just looks a little odd to me.

    In the second pic you can sort of see the buds a bit in front of where the stake is going in.
