    Default Paph wenshanense and Paph helenae - About to bloom

    I can tell you that I am extremely excited about the fact the my wenshanense(first two pictures), bought in Sep 2008 finally is about to bloom! I just can't wait

    In the second two pictures is the small and yet so beautiful and tender Paph helenae, which bloomed also last October for me.

    I will post new pics once the blooms open!

    Thanks for looking guys

    Just purchased my first paph. It is a nice sized plant and is supposed to be blooming size. Anything special I need to do to get it to bloom? Yours are beautiful even without the blooms. Love the varigation on the first one.

    Thanks guys for your comments...for me, i can't wait for the wenshanense to open its bloom specifically as I already had the helenae bloom less than a year ago. I will make seperate posts when both are in bloom.

    Hi Branka. I keep on looking at it daily ...eager to get it to open the bloom
    Hi valenzino.My supplier from Brussels is sure that it is a wenshanense and I have dealt with hime for a few years now. I guess we'll be sure soon enough when I post photos of the bloom
