    My other Paph is a Paph Laser x Paph cherry Cider

    I just hope they turn out as dark as they seem to be when they do open.

    Looks like this one might have more white on the dorsal. Should be striking.

    I can't wait for them to open up and say "HOWDY" and surprise me with their color. Oh forgot to mention this one seems to have a keike or pup or what ever they are called with paphs at the base you can make it out in the photo of the whole plant... I love little bonuses like that.

    That's a new growth, just like a new pbulb on other orchids. It will mature and then put out a bloom when it gets to the size of the blooming growth.

    There is plenty of red colouring in the base of the leaves , normally a sure sign of a lot of red/dark colouring in the flowers.

    That looks like it will be pretty striking. I can't wait to see it.

    Me either... Luckily I have them on the orchid shelf right where I can watch them. They are in nearly full shade, not sure if that's where they belong but they seem happy and I give them a lite misting every morning. Course I've only had them 2 days LOL
