    Wow, Tim-O! You have a huge specimen Diane Thumb! Be sure to PM her. She thought she'd be around more after the first of the year, but it's easy to lose posts with the huge forum traffic these days. I'm sure she'd love to see yours!

    That's some lovely plant, and its leaves look much happier with this year's posting!

    I was watering my badly neglected Paphs this weekend and thought I was carrying a good-sized Paph phil to the bathtub for a drink, and saw a spike! I was curious which one it was and was amazed to see that my mini-teacup Paph exul has grown into a pretty large plant, and is happy enough in neglect to toss out a spike.

    It's feeling the love now!

    I'm showing your dianthum photos to urge it on!

    I am impressed, and it's not even the kind of Paph that really gets my heart pumping. Wonderful specimen, Tim, Prince of Paphs!

    Cheers,
