    Wow! Absolutely stunning! The marking on the dorsal is beautiful and the 'horn' petals is what makes this species so special!

    You are obviously doing something right with this plant! Look how healthy it is... and to have so many flowers... I am completely envious.

    Could you please share your growing technique for this plant. I have two and they are very, very unhappy indeed!

    This is a beautiful, healthy plant. I remember you mentioning that you do not fertilize any of your plants at all, is this true for this one as well?

    Thank you everyone. The leaf-span of this plant is 12". Yes I don't fertilize my plant. My water has abou 250 TDS. This is enough for most paphs, if you added more fertilizer to this water, the TDS would be too high. Like most plant if you can replicate the condition of where these plants are from, they will thrive for you. My max summer temp is 90F my min. winter temp is 45F. I water about twice a week.
