    Thank you!

    I took a gamble when I purchased this Paph. I got him at the 2012 Missouri Botanical Gardens Orchid Show. He was a little stunted and obviously the "runt" of the litter, but I loved the bloom features so much I passed over healthier orchids to take him home. I was hoping he would pull through and after a (very) slow start he's made it!
