    Good growing. Paph purpuratum is often a little more difficult than the typical Maudiae-type Paphs, but you obviously have it figured out. How long has the flower been open? Just a day or 2 probably?

    They are both very beautiful. I have the green one a well and it bloomed for me with two flowers (on two growths of course). The blooms are nice but the leaves are so beautiful it doesn't matter if they bloom or not.
