    Default Lazy guy, what to do?

    This Paph has a very (relative) large leaf but it's been upside down and laying on the table (a lazy leaf). It doesn't even have the slightest hint of yellow but it's still a little weird. What should I do with it, or the plant in general?

    Give the plant more light. The very dark green color makes me think that it is not getting enough light and the leaves are growing larger like that to take in more light. JMHO

    The picture without the flash might actually be a little deceptive. The long leaves are from an old growth that was there before I got it and it didn't really grow any more. The new growth has much smaller leaves.
    I agree the leaves look quite dark but somehow I was hoping it was genetic. I've moved it a bit to where it would get some more light. It just looks weird having a leaf flopping around like that.
