    Default thank you!

    Thanks for the comments, and here I thought it was a pretty mediocre picture taken with a camera which I have little experience with.

    So if you liked that, here is a look at its backside.

    Stunning! I love it.

    How long have you been growing it in S/H?

    Cheers,

    Default Gratrixianum on the burner

    This paph was started in S/H roughly four years ago. It's taken quite awhile for it to grow into the pot, which may have been too large to start with. But there are two shoots behind this first flower which, if they produce blooms, could result in an impressive display.

    And if that impressive display occurs, I will most certainly take its picture in a location other than on the top of my oven.

    Wow, such a beauty !! Another frontal shot on a dark background will do it justice.
