    I think it,s very unlikely that it will grow new buds , i would say impossible but there is bound to be some instances of it happening.

    Thanks for the info uncast. Now I finally know what's going on with my susan booth.

    I was also just wondering, since I suspect that an orchid show is coming up soon, what would be a good choice for my next multifloral? Or should I try a flask. The main guy who sells multiflorals brings them from overseas, with flasks that cost about $65, which is a lot over here. Should I try my luck with a normal paph flask? You see i've never deflasked before.

    Oh yes, uncast. I took up orchidgrowing to learn patience.

    Booliesmom, sorry to hear bout your paph.

    ARRG!!!!

    Just went to the vendors website and found out that a susan booth that's about a year away from flowering costs only about $6 more than what I paid.

    Btw, my one's name is Susan Booth (rothschildianum 'Charles Everitt.' FCC/AOS x praestans 'Knob Creek' AM/AOS ). It says that you should expect a very large, vigorous plant!

    Well thats the same as mine(actual leaf span is 26" & still growing) so it,s got some growing to do.
    Plants probably originated from Radcliffes , i,ve seen this cross offered in the Uk & US.

    Your multifloral paph need high light close to Cattleya conditions and warm temperature to grow fast. I grow them under HID lighting and the temperature is 75 - 85 F day and night is around 68 - 72 F year round. My roth seedling from flask two years ago are about 15 inches in leafspan.
