    Smile Paph fairrieanum In Bloom

    This is the 3rd year I have had this and the 3rd year it has bloomed.

    The next growth is decent in size. I don't know if it will bloom this season or wait till next year. So far only one growth per year has bloomed.

    Paph fairrieanum (fairrieanum 'Red' AM/AOS x fairrieanum 'OZ')

    So far the dorsal is not upright and has an unexpected 'ruffle' in it this year. Hopefully it will open more.

    Nice growing Harvey, hope it straightens up a bit for you. Maybe it had a dry spell as it was opening?

    Thanks Jeromy!
    I am not sure why it opened poorly. It did have even watering and I did fight mealy bugs on the long stem a bit but they never had time to do damage, I think. But I still love it. There are 2 new growths, one pretty far along, maybe it will bloom this season too.
