    Connie and Diogo, I don't think he grows this one. He probably just took a photo of the flower of a nursery plant. All Paraphal. species look pretty much the same plant-wise, mostly pendent, whip-like, pencil shaped leaves.

    Vincent, perhaps you should let people know if you just post a photo of a flower/plant that doesn't belong to you. That way, people won't(in most cases) ask you culture advice, plant source or additional photos. Just my opinion.

    Thank you for sharing your photos.

    Mine's got a loooong way to grow, then. It is currently in a 1.5 in pot, and the longest leaf is 3 inches! Maybe 15 years from now I can share pictures of the blooms.

    I treat all my Paraphals just like a vanda.
    They aren't difficult, but they take ages to grow and bloom.
    My seedling i bought three or four years back still hasn't bloomed, but ten leaves and lots of roots
