    I'm pretty involved in my plants, but I just can't take this one seriously - I think it looks like a man with a big long nose in a big long face, with little bitty arms trying to fly like Superman!

    I've probably just been repotting too long - I'm starting to see things....

    Let me try to diagnose the problem, and yes you have a common sickness called orchidose tolonginate. It's easily cured though. Just clean up the repotting stuff, not all the way mind you, and then the important part. Take 2 or 3 days and do not even think about any sort of orchid. In other words, absorb yourself in anything other than orchids. Orchidose toloninate is easy to diagnose and easy to cure, but you must catch in it's early stages or it can advance into some pretty bad stuff that you don't want. Dr. Chancey

    fun! Well, this paph may have a large nose, but I still think *he* is handsome. Love the bold green and white bloom and the patterning in the leaves. This is why I grow so many of these type paphs.

    cheers,

    Well, Dr. Chaunceym you're going to have to help her not think about orchids for 2 or 3 days. Good luck with that!
