    Smile Paph godefroyae In Bloom

    I bought this 1 month ago in bud, so I am only responsible for nursing the bud to open.

    It is a one growth Paph when I got it. Now a new growth has emerged. It is in a 2" pot and only 3 inches tall. IOSPE says it grows in low elevations, so in the long run I may have trouble with it here at 5658 ft. elevation.

    I didn't realize it was hairy until I got my close ups shot.

    Thanks Doreen! I learned photography from a Nazi Holocaust survivor during the 1960's in summer camp.

    I have one of these, however it is not thriving. I need to look at the roots, but I suspect it is near dead. I have similar problems with other spotted paphs. What do I need to change? They are "growing" in same light as phaps, gets rain water from a slate roof. Does it need more acidity or?

    Thank you for any help
