    Cool Paph spicerianum

    The 2nd bud this season on my Paph spicerianum ('Taiwan Truffle' x 'Fat Boy') has matured and is now open. It is blemish free! I am happy with this bloom.

    It has also now grown 2 more buds. So blooming will be going on for a while.

    One of the most beautiful paphs around, and yours is lovely! Mine just won't bloom in the lowlands though its cross with liemaunum blooms regularly for me, but its not half as pretty as either parent.

    It took 3- 6 weeks between each of the 4 that bloomed for me this season.
