    Default Paph. Salvadore Dali

    Here is a first blooming of Salvadore Dali. It is a cross of chamberlainianum var. victoria-reginae x liemanum. I can see two or three additional buds already in line behind this one! I like all of the plants in this group. They are compact, easy bloomers, and seem to bloom for years at a time! My primulinum is going on its 4th month in bloom and I believe the newest growth is showing a sheath!

    It does look like Salvador Dali--that famous mustache! Spike should keep going for a very long time--very nice growing! You wouldn't happen to have a pic of the entire plant, would you?

    Ooooh! How exciting! I have the same cross and mine is currently in bud. The spike is no longer than 2 inches yet. I'll post a picture of mine when it blooms and we can compare! Cochlopetalums are my absolute favorites. You have a really nice plant there!!

    I like that one too! I'd like to see the whole plant too, to get an idea of the scale.

    Louis, I'll be back in the office shortly and will snap a photo of the entire plant. This plant and my wardii seem to be the two most vigorous plants I own!
