    Smile Paph stonei in bloom.

    My stonei normally blooms in February but this year it has decided to reward me with another bloom for the year. There are 2 more sheaths on the plants in the same clump and I hope these will be the February (2013) blooms. As I have mentioned before this paph blooms 8 months after the sheath first emerges - yes it takes that long!

    The flower stem is 20 inches tall and the 2 lateral sepals measure 4 1/2 inches. I have included a picture with stonei and 2 recently acquired Maudiae an 'album' and a 'Vinicolor' for comparison. I bought these 2 to keep my stonei company as it was looking rather lonely and forlorn .Actually I've been wanting to get these after seeing Maura's Vinicolor and Bill's alba type. I bought them in bud - the 'album' one is OK but the 'Vinicolor' is a bit disappointing - I hate that 'pinched' pouch.

    I must be suffering from dementia - 2 mistakes in 2 posts. In the first sentence of the second paragraph 'lateral sepals' should , of course be ' lateral petals'

    Yew, your plant looks not so big and already is flowering, so I hope to see flowers on my stonei soon.

    I'm sure yours will flower soon. This paph grows like a weed. I started with 1 adult plant with a keiki and there are 7 fans in there already with 2 or 3 more keikis. I know it's time to divide and repot but I keep looking at the 2 sheaths about to open in 2 - 3 months' time. I wish my sanderianum would grow as robustly as the stonei.

    No dont say like that you still ok just very busy or so many activities in the brain cant focus at one time, all the flowers very handsome, maybe to late to adjust from inside the pouch as the pouch already established.
