    Question What is the leaf span of a blooming size sanderianum?

    Greeting everyone. I am wondering what is the leaf span of a blooming size Sanderianum. I have one that is 13" from leaf to leaf and wondering how long will it bloom.

    I'm thinking maybe 3-5 years?

    Thanks,

    Im no expert with paphiopedilums but I would say around 20" and up.. as for how long until your's blooms, I cant say, I just know that these grow very slowly, I have a primary hybrid with sanderianum as one of the parents and the thing is a couple feet long and it still hasn't bloomed.
    Hope that I could help!, hopefully one of the other members more experienced with paphs. will chime in
