    Very beautiful... Not to take away from your thread Bruce, but I have a Paph Saint Low (St. Swithin x lowii). The plant is hugh by my standards as you can see in the pic, not that means anything but it hasn't flowered in over a year.... I keep it moist, cool and good light and feed it every now and again but no flowers.... I purchased it with flowers about a year or two ago and 3/4 the size.

    Hi Bruce,
    Your St Swithin holds its arms out more than mine does...

    Love the setting by the pond!

    Thanks everyone!!

    Gita - beautiful!! Did you bloom that one indoors? WOW!

    Howard, yours looks very green and lush. Increase the light if possible and it should bloom for you. What a healthy plant!

    Cheers,

    Thanks Bruce! You are so nice! I have bloomed St Swithin before, but then it died when I had to be away for >3 weeks a couple of years ago. It took 2 years, but I mopped up the last of my guilty feelings and went looking for another one. Guess what! A vendor was selling them in spike, so I got one of those, so I'm only maintaining the spike and blooming it out now and trying to make it last. But I have a bunch of other m/f paphs in bloom (some of which I did rebloom) and they are all happily hanging out at the bar now.
