    Default Paph chamberlainianum

    The tag says "Paph chamberlainianum v liemianum". Somehow I wonder if this isn't a primary cross between the two and not a "variation". And if it is a cross, that would make it Paph Salvador Dali. This flowers faithfully for me and as you can see there will be more flowers later....

    With the twisted mustache, I can see why it was named after Dali. Very nice.

    Superb Howard, wish I could grow paphs. Just never got the hang of it. I have 4 of them including a Kolopa Kingii that I can't get to re-bloom. They have put on a lot of top growth, but no blooms. I heard somewhere that the kingii only blooms every 5 yrs. Do you have any insight into this problem?

    I've had a problem re-blooming mine, also. I am giving them more light and using very dilute feedings and I am hoping this changes things....
