    Default Paphiopedilum rothschildian 'starlight' x 'paris'

    Bought this at our club auction. Difficult to find pics but evidently is a product from Germany.
    Hasn't flowered yet but has multiple growths with at least two growths of blooming size, not large like other roths.The leafspan is just 16".

    Looks to be a great buy - although I suspect it will need to be bigger before it will flower. I have not flowered one at only 16 inch span. But I have not seen one with muitiple growths and no old flower spikes. Maybe grown wrong , to give such a lush plant but no flowers ? Will give you something to get your teeth into, culturally. Best of luck .

    I have given up on mine ever flowering in the lowlands. It bloomed nicely when I 'lodged' it with a friend in the highlands (about 5000ft altitude).

    I'll give it plenty of light, humidity and warmth but go easy on the fertilizer and see what happens.

    Hi Jeff. The plant started to spike a week ago so it will be very interesting to see the outcome.

    Looks quite healthy. It's only a matter of time. Has it ever bloomed before? How many leaves did it have when it did flower?

    Never flowered before and can't find a pic on the web of this make-up. The plant has 2 large growths and 3 half grown ones plus one small growth. The growth which is producing the flower has 10 leaves.
