    Default Paph spicerianum

    This is a reliable bloomer. I was disappointed with the shape of the bloom on it this time. It actually grew under the leaves of another paph and because of that, it is distorted. Usually we get two spikes at a time on this one, but I guess I had it too buried or crowded so it did not get enough light. Anyway, here it is. Enjoy.
