    This is the first time I have ever had a complex paph produce 2 buds on a spike. It will be interesting to see how it looks when they open.

    Ah...you forget my weird fellow from last winter. They can do this - it's just rare when a unifloral tries to go multi.

    Let me find that thread for the newbies. It will be fun to see how yours compares!

    What's the Paph?

    Paphs don't keiki. New growths grow up from the base of the plant, so that's what you saw. It's healthy and I'm looking forward to seeing how it flowers this year.

    I've got a lot more plants now, so it's not getting quite as much light as it did in the past, but it certainly is the energizer bunny - nothing bothers it. Some of my other Paphs are quite fussy.

    I did leave the leaf on the spike, since it contributes to the plant's energy. It is one funny looking 'chid!
