    A long time favorite of mine that I finally acquired a few months ago. I really love the color and form of the blooms.

    Nice choice! I am testing out my luck with slippers too. They are so lovely, can't resist :-)

    I have one that has yet to bloom. I hope it's as nice as yours!

    Nice. Many Ho Chi Minh look good, but if you are lucky enough to have one that lasts more than 10 days, cherish it.

    I know what you mean. The first bloom has been out for about 8 days and is beginning to spot and loose substance .

    Love it, need it, getting it. I find that the moment my paphs start to bloom, once the dorsal has lifted properly, I move them away from the windows - and keep them in a cooler area. Even my parvisepalum hybrids appreciate it.

    my favorite paph, seems that if one is entered in our tri-county shows it wins a ribbon. Mine just opened and it seems the pouch is smaller this year but still beautiful. Three blooms nice size plant. Good Growing!
