    Default Paph. Spicerianum update

    I'm having the best luck with this plant. I've currently got three flowers on two spikes and another spike already two inches long. This is the plant's first blooming!!! I've never heard of a sequential spike on a spicerianum. I hope I can do it again! I'm currently feeding virtually everything with Dyna-grow and Superthrive.

    Just for fun, I hit the largest bloom with Gold Dollar pollen almost a week ago and the column is already beginning to swell!

    Here is a shot of the bloom that I pollinated before it began to shrivel.
