    Default Paph philippinense

    This time my Paph philippinense is blooming with 2 spikes (from 2 plants growing in the same pot)- 5 blooms on one spike 6 on the other. Actually I had intended separating and repotting the clump but noticed the sheaths and put off repotting .

    Only once a year. Any way it takes a year for a new growth(fan) to mature. I was thinking of growing this into a specimen plant with multiple leads but after seeing fungal rot in a few of my paphs, I have changed my mind and will divide and repot, to prevent losing my whole pot of this orchid.Btw 2 pots of my Paph liemianum are in bloom;, 2 concolor, a bellatulum and a wenshanense are spiking. First time my wenshanense is producing 2 buds on the same spike and I hope I will be able to see them open together.
