    Default New to Paphs..question

    Hey everyone,
    I'm not that experienced with Paphs, I only have two species delenatii and niveum, both plants have flowered, and both are creating new growths, the niveum four, and the delenatii seven.
    Now, on the niveum all the new little growths are at the base of the plant, but the delenatii growths are just everywhere, a few are at the base, a few way above the base, and one growth near the crown.
    Is this a problem, or this the way that paph delenatii usually grows...and is it suppose to making that many new growths.

    that's an unusual number of new growths for most plants. typically you get one or two right off the bat, and sometimes more in the future. are you using any hormones or additives?

    Just a drop of superthrive every month, I usually have to water every three to five days because it's so warm..other than that I only use a non urea fert and Pro-Tekt...
