    I think as with all my Paphs this year they have suffered from the extreme temps from earlier in the year. Most are so slow in moving the flowers or not flowering its depressing but they are moving well now. Too late though.
    Your request, this is what its supposed to look like.

    I think you should give it some more time... It will be nice! Is too early to say anything against it yet! Can't wait to see it open!

    Margo, the flower will never be any good the way it is, flowered too many not to know. The dorsal will just firl back. The pollen will come in handy though.

    What a shame that has happened but I still think it is lovely, just maybe not showing quality, Is there any reason this happens or is it just one of those things?
