    Wonderful orchid! Sounds as if its ever blooming! I have a Paphiopedilium Memoria Nicholas Haman that is on its third bloom in as many months and it looks nearly identical to yours. As it grows maybe I will be lucky and have a similar experience. Great Growing1 AL

    That's a lovely plant! Did the blooms orient themselves to face the window? I have maudiae type paphs that have produced two blooms at once, but they faced opposite directions...they were back-to-back. Would have been easier displayed facing the same direction as yours are.... Maybe my light source should have been toward the side as opposed to overhead. Jason
