    Default Paph Olympic Halo

    Hi,
    Have not seen this before, a Complex/Bulldog Paph with two blooms on one spike. Is it fairly common ??
    It's a nice looking flower but neither is able to fully open as yet. Top has been open about a week, lower a couple of days.
    We'll see what happens.

    Hi, Love your pic. beautiful paph. I am new to growing these and only have two. I don't know if two blooms per stem is common or not but my Lady Luck (Winston Churchill 'Indomitable' FCC x Skip Bartlett 'White Pepper' HCC) did the same thing. It had two stems, one with a single bloom and the other with 2. All blooms opened beautifully. They do take time to open so give urs time. Enjoy! Bill

    Thanx Bill,
    I contacted Theresa, from whom I bought the plant. She said it does happen occasionally but is rare. Guess we're lucky.
