    The combination of colors, stripes and twisted petals is amazing. I love it!

    thanks guys. julie, this species is liable to "clumping" where it sends out lots of growths that take their sweet time to mature. they can start blooming when they're 6-8" across but most of the time 12" is closer to the mark. but if you can bloom all the growths at once...that would be some sight!

    Cool! Thanks for the info, Jason! It's important to manage expectations. But I did neglect to mention how lovely your blooms and photographs are! How can one resist a Paph dipped in chocolate?
