    Hmmm? I suppose you should pack it up and send it to me. That way, I can keep an eye on it and make sure it blooms next year. heheheheeee It is pretty paph. Do a search here on Paph Bel Royal. I would bet Jason (Jmoney) has this same cross and has posted bloom photos along with some general growing instructions here on RVO. Good luck!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Why does everyone want to steal this beautiful plant?? Poor ischel1, I will help you "guard" it. Please sign this disclaimer.

    No one ever reads the small print anyway.
    For very important legal reasons I'd like to advise you to please note the quotation marks around the carefully selected word guard.

    very stately cross. yours is heavily predominated by the kolopakingii parent. all you have to do is keep it evenly moist, moderately bright, and wait 2-3 years for the next growth to mature. on big plants with multiple new growths you can get flowers each year but in the beginning it takes a while.

    Really? 2-3 years? Now that takes patience! Makes you even more proud when it reblooms, too, I'd bet.

    It will certainly give you something to look forward to.

    And just to add my opinion - it's lovely! sigh....

    that thing looks much different than all of the Bel Royals Ive seen. the petals almost have a stonei look to them with the color.. also you can get blooms in about a years wait not 2-3 even on a young plant. repot it after the blooms are done. use the smallest pot the roots will fit into... they dont like to be overpotted.. you ought to be able to get the new shoot(s) up to size in 12 monthes if you keep it watered and use some fert and medium light..
