    Default Paph. wilhelminae

    This is my favorite so far of multifloral paphs that have bloomed for me, I like the small size and coloration, but this year I only got 1 bloom. Now comes the part where you can call me crazy,I'm afraid you'll probably have to stand in line, this growth bloomed for me last year. I received the plant with 2 growths,one already had a spent bloom stalk that had been cut. The newer growth bloomed and gave me 3 blooms, when the flowers were done I cut the stalk,did not wait for it to dry up. It then started to grow leaves ascending up the stalk, and about 2 months ago started to get a bloom. I know this sounds crazy and I tried to research reblooming paphs all I found is that it can happen on rare occasions. The plant has just recently put out 2 new growths. I've included photos of the bloom, the leafy stalk, and the plant,old growth is 1, new reblooming growth is 2Name:  mini paph (Copy).jpg
