    amazing... and such patience you have there Yew, I dont think I can wait for a bloom to open for 8months.... but its worth it since your patience is rewarded with beautiful blooms.

    I don't know how often it blooms as i've had mine for just 2 years and this is the first time it has bloomed. Seeing that yours bloomed in December, I don't think there's any definite season. The rothchildianum bloomed in in late January(in the Cameron Highlands) and philippinense just a month ago and there's a 'hint' of a sheath on the kolopakingii (at least I hope it is a sheath) and there seems to be stunted growth on the sanderianum. BTW all the plants mentioned were acquired at the same time 2 years ago. Before this the only paphs I had were niveums and concolor.

    I also put sheep manure pellets ( the one from New Zealand) in the growing medium as well as slow-release Osmocote.I foliar feed with a weak fertiliser weekly.

    Hmmm, thats interesting. Fertiliser wise i mean. I have another paph I rescued from a friends house but I havent got a clue as to the species. It was in pretty bad shape when I rescued it. I repotted it and now after almost 3 months, its doing well, healthy with new shoots but no sign of a sheath..If I had to guess its probably a barbatum since they are pretty common here in Perak. Had a concolor a while back but stupidly didnt monitor it for a while until I realised it had rot..cut away almost all the leaves, sprayed fungicide and thankfully there was a baby. Its on the long road to recovery.
