    Default Updated photos of first Palph bloom.

    Here are some updated photos of the flower now open. I know the form is not perfect but it's my first Palph bloom so I'm happy. Also added a pic of one I bought in bloom.

    This is either Paph. (Makuli-Curtisii) -Maudiae x Paph. Maudiae 'Napa Valley' HCC/AOS x Sib or Paph. Phillippinense var. ALBA #5 x Paph. Somer Isles 'In-Charm' SM/TPS. I mixed up the labels :-( The purple one is called a Pink Pop.

    It wouldn't be Maudiae. Maudiae isn't a multi-floral.

    Thanks for the clarification everyone. The Maudiae is sending up a spike now but it has only partially cleared the inner leaves. It is not progressing as fast as the Phillippinense :-(
    Here is a better pic of the flower. Not the best form but...
