    LOL! Maybe, I've had no luck reblooming phals but I suspect it's due to not enough temperature difference. I'll have to experiment more with those. I like Paphs better though anyway! I also got one of my Dens to reblooms as well.

    Congratulations, Tommy! A nice flower too! Warts are considered beautiful on Paphs.

    I second that!!!

    Good growing Tommy! And a beautiful flower you have... Now I believe this is what's known as a peacock of the maudiae types. The peacock referring to the black spots and maudiae to the dorsal.. course I could be wrong, so would appreciate anyone to explain what I'm talking about

    nice paph! tim, I think you could call that a peacock, although this is definitely a "loose" definition. you also see a nice pronounced "flame" in the dorsal.
