    Incredible blooms and the markings are superb Maura. Never get to see mine flower as I always get defeated by crown rot. Guess my environment is just not suitable with the continuous need for misting. Does Phillip get jealous when your paphs get all the attention over the bonsai from visitors to your home. I do hope ive got the right maura or this reply will seem insane.

    Yes, indeed, you got all of it right, although Phillip just bought a 40 year-old 4' bald cypress at a bonsaid auction that is quite dramatic looking. You know, your crown rot may be due to leaving little wells of water at the center of your paph leaves - wnen I happen to splash water in there, I wick it out with either paper towels or even Q-tips. I would think anywhere in England would be a perfect place for paphs - EXCEPT in too much light in a sunroom.
