    Default Multi-floral paph goodness

    Never spotted this as i was concentrating on some of my other paphs that look as though they are in sheath.
    Was taking a piccie of 1 off my Prags & noticed it as i was moving a few plants.
    Paph lowii "Dragonfly" AM/AOS X lowii "#4-97A"
    This is a single growth plant but has very upright leaves that are over 17" long.

    This is the distraction.

    The really nice paph rothschildianum.
    Also it looks like 1 off my paph Delrosi , paph Vietnam Star & my paph supardii are in sheath.
    I think i am going to faint.

    Congrats, Steve!

    I think discovering the spikes is the most exciting, because it's so unexpected. It's great to see the flowers bloom, but that first peek of a spike is pretty special!

    especially when you first see them and convince yourself it is just a new leaf popping out. THEN two days later you realize.....


    IT'S A SPIKE!!!!!!

    Watering tends to get a little tedious--but discovering a new bud ALWAYS makes it all seem worthwhile.
