    Tim,

    That's beautiful! Could you post a picture of the whole plant with spikes and flowers? I would love to see it!

    sweating from moving the monster around...

    and sorry it isn't a very good photo... I didn't have a big enough black cloth...

    if I get a chance, I will try and update this photo so it is 'prettier'...

    That is just absolutely incredible. I am so jealous. Never in my life have I seen such a monster of a paph.

    Default Paph dianthum 'Diane-thum' 2009

    So a whole year later for an update on the monster Paph.

    here's a close up of some of the flowers -



    and to show how it has grown since.... well actually, I am not sure if the plant has grown or it has just decided to do a bit more this year...



    there's nothing like a 'specimen' plant to give one a good exercise!


    cheers
