    WOW!! I have 2 psy papilio v flava. They are both a bit too young to flower. I was expecting the usual one flower at a time thing. I am going to print these pictures out and pin them up next to mine so that they know what they should be doing.

    Have you ever had a bloom fall off and then the next bud stalls. Will it eventually continue, or will this one get pushed off by a new one, or am I doomed to no more flowers.

    Jonada, to answer your questions, yes, yes, and your not doomed. My experience has been that they do not bloom all the time , they take breaks from time to time. Zain, these are truly beautiful and one of my favorites. May I ask how long you have had this orchid and about how often it blooms for you.

    Thanks for looking this thread and comments.
    Al,thanks for answering Jonada question, I had this plants more than 6 months, right now producing 2 side shoots, I would say almost every5- 6 weeks another blooms will appear. This guy producing 4 flowers simultaneously on the 2 spikes.You can see the plants itself very tough.
