    Definitely going to the top of my list.... After I find out what kind of care it needs? Drop dead gorgeous blooms. Please tell me that's a good beginners paph?

    It wouldn't be too bad as a beginner multi floral, but I would recommend buying a NBS or BS one. It is a big plant with about an 16 - 18" leaf span. This bloomed on it's first growth but I had some root issues from over potting, so I only have 2 blooms on this second growth spike. The third growth is already half grown.

    gorgeous color, ron! shaydra--a better beginner's multifloral would be st. swithin, if only because it typically grows much faster and blooms freely. lady isabel usually grows slowly and some can be hard to bloom.

    I didn't know this one was hard to bloom. I haven't had a problem with blooming it. Saint Swithin is a fav of mine!!
