    I do find my Paphs seem to take about 23040439867 years to finally open after they put up a bud... try to hang in there!

    I only have three of them at this time, all with mottled leaves. I want to be sure I can grow them well before I get too carried away, but I do really like them!

    I have noticed that they are very slow. I only have a handful as well (3 mature & 3 seedlings I think). I am pretty picky about the paphs. Some of them have such lovely flowers but I do not care for the foliage, same with phrags. Though I am sure I will expand my collection down the road. I've just been extremely fixated on catts lately.
