    Thanks for the kind words!

    Lynda: I love watching slippers develop, you never know what can happen!

    Tim: Hahaha! You caught me. My paph-addiction seems to start during the holiday season every year and wanes around the spring time. Then again the coming year.

    Beautiful plant. Paphs are my next plant of interest to get. I think it is really that I have to get my wife to want to buy a paph!!!! She keeps thinking she is seeing new plants popping up all over the place! :-)

    Jerry: I highly advise it! They are relatively easily to care for, hardy, and bloom even in the worst of situations.
