    Default Another mystery Paph about to bloom

    I bought this one about six months ago, not in bloom and no tag! Two of the growths started budding. It appears that it will be light-colored blooms from what I can see from the buds. I will keep on posting progress pics hopefully!

    Thanks Guys. It is a nice Paph, very healthy and seems to be very easy, compared to other Paphs that I haven't been able to bloom, such as the delenatii and the armeniacum white.

    I have been researching to find out what this mystery one is, but no luck so far. I just have to wait for the blooms to open. I am sure it is light-colored. Maybe creamish, or greenish color.

    We'll find out soon and I will post some photos when it does

    As a guess, I reckon this plant could be Paph liemianum or a hybrid there of.

    Default Update: we now know it is a multi-floral or sequential blooming paph

    Hey Guys,

    It is quite exciting waiting for this mystery beauty open its blooms. It is taking its time, but I am sure that its worth the wait

    The spikes have gotten longer and I can count three buds on each spike, so maybe Roy is close in his guess? Thanks for that Roy.

    I have posted some pictures on the progress. Thanks for looking guys!
