    congratulations Gin! and thanks for all the lovely comments everyone...

    Roy, just the three flowers, but this is a first time flowering for this plant bought as a seedling oh so long ago... gosh maybe five years.

    thanks for the info McInfo, maybe that is why it has taken this long for this one to flower!

    Ania, lol... now that you know how long it's taken for this to bloom, maybe you now think it is better at your place heheheh

    Gorgeous! Great growing Tim!

    This is also my all time favorite paph! I have a tiny seedling from the orchid society meeting drawing, but I have a friend who has a blooming sized one- I think it will benefit from McInfo's info on drying out between waterings!
