    Unhappy Broke the flower buds off of my Paph!

    I know this is probably a waste of time, but my favorite paph just broke and I'm hoping someone out there might know of a way for me to get it to re-bloom from the same stem. The buds broke right near the top while I was trying to straighten out the stem. Needless to say, I could just vomit.

    I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    I have never gotten any blooms from a paph once the stem was broken. Phals yes, paphs no. There is a similar thread about a multifloral where the tip browned. He is getting the same feedback... Sorry to hear about yours, hopefully you have a new growth or two on the way for next year!
