    Default Paph Pinocchio var album revisited

    Had this plant for over 18 months & it was in flower with 2 spikes.
    Now it has 5 spikes & the old 1's are still going & have had more than 20 flowers each

    The 5th spike is not in flower yet it is just under the double flowering spike @ the bottom of piccie.
    A better(older) shot of an individual flower.

    This is truly amazing! I have never heard of such a thing! My Paphiopedilum victoria-reginae has no competition against your plant! Nice growing!

    PS: How tall are those spikes? How about the plant?

    The 2 big spikes are 28" or so.
    The plant is in a 4" pot & there is a couple more mature growths that should spike in a couple of months.
