    Gorgeous Philippe I like the long petals to allow the ants crawling into the slipper. The plants looked so healthy. Good job. Zain

    Yes this plant is one growth.

    I have to admit that I have done everything necessary to get a flowering this summer. Indeed, I have considerably increased the temperature by putting the pant close a ceiling window with a hight temperature.

    Then, I put a fan of greater power. The plant balance with the wind. And then, miraculously, it bloomed. Nevertheless, I am happy with only 2 flowers ...

    Nice. I wonder how long these blooms can last.

    My paph sanderianum x philippinense has grown so many leaves now. I think it will bloom soon
