    Hey Byron - fabulous-looking plant - you'd think it would have 10 spikes, it's so big and healthy. That said, most of the new growth on my paphs not in bloom look similar, and it never occurred to me they might actually be spiking for me. Let's all hope!

    Beautiful healthy plants. Keep your fingers crossed. The longest I had to wait was 8 months for my Paph stoneii. It put out another sheath in April and the sheath is now 4 inches long and so I can expect to see the blooms in November.
