    I do too Susan, especially when I was expecting to wait two years. LOL I was prepared to just enjoy the pretty foliage, for a very long time.

    This Paph is still growing like crazy, but no sign of opening yet. I sure hope I get to see it before I leave to visit my family for Christmas. It would be awful if it bloomed and ended while I'm away.

    Oh wow. Now I am getting excited. Thanks Tim. I can't wait to see it in bloom, but had no idea how long it would take.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Tim, I think we were both overly optimistic. This little one just doesn't want to come out in any sort of hurry.

    It is definitely opening, just at a very sloooooooooooow pace. Maybe it's just waiting for

    Boy, I hope you're right Bruce, because I'm leaving on the 23rd to visit with my family up north for the holidays. I would sure hate to miss this one.

    And yes, it separates a teeny little bit each day, but it's as if it just likes staying in it's leafy cocoon for now. I do think I'm going to wake up to a big surprise one of these days though.
