    Very nice! May I ask what the leafspan on this paph is? Ive looked into getting a dianthum but I grow under lights and space is an issue. I try to stay with the smaller paphs, although I do have a roth :-/

    This is the biggest leafspan for this group as I know (in Viet Nam)

    This is one more photo I just shot.

    Quite common and easy to find in Hong Kong, but hard to bloom in lowland.
