    Cool Paph. Pinocchio

    First bloom for this one, but it has maybe one or two coming behind, what do you think?
    Fairly new a paphs. but trying to learn quick, trying to find the perfect mix to use. Right now, I'm planting in sponge rock, charcoal, small bark chip and cocnuts husks. Seems to be doing pretty good, having to water atleast twice a week, It has been in the high 80's this week.

    This plant is a sequential bloomer. You'll get multiple flowers from the spike...Nice flower btw!

    From the photo, it looks like two...but I suppose there could be more than that later on with good culture.

    Very nice! Usually, once a flower drops a new flower will open, my aunt's bloomed for 5 years straight!!
    I love yours! Mine is in spike now. Hope it has such a good bloom and straight spike!

    I have seen some pics where the spike just keeps getting longer and longer. Is there anything you can do with this spike, train it to wrap around or something. Can it be trimmed or do these only bloom from the tip Thanks for any ideas.
