    Default Paph helenae - Anticipation

    I wanted to share with you guys some photos of my Paph helenae bloom, getting ready to open. I took these picture in the morning and I think by the end of they day, the bloom might be open.
    I thought it would be nice to see the bloom right before it opens completely, so stay posted for some more pics... I am really proud of this small Paph

    Default Update after 14 hours on bloom

    Here are some pics after 14 hours from the previous ones taken, so you can see it is opening up quite quickly. We are actually having real hot weather for this time of the year so it is speeding up the process a bit

    I will also post some new pics tomorrow hopefully

    Have a good weekend guys

    She's so pretty!!! What's the size of the pot she's in? I have two of these that are still just a single growth but one has a much larger leafspan than the other.
