    Gilda, it seems that the smaller multiflorals are the ones that are trickier to bloom. The aforementioned wilhelminiae has been the bane of my existence--not to discourage anyone from trying, but I have not had success with my plant (a grand sample size of 1, of course). adductum is also more compact, although some would say it carries rather somber flowers. I have heard it's not the most vigorous species, unfortunately.

    There are, however, some plants of the philippinense/roebelenii swarm that are very compact, and these things are pretty forgiving. I had one that bloomed on 12-14" growths, but that's something that's hard to tell unless you see a mature plant.

    If you're into *sequential* bloomers, primulinum is very compact. Small flowers, one at a time, but a spike can be in bloom for over a year.

    That cuts deeply, Louis. I apologize for my oversight, lest anyone think I'm a species snob. adductum & wilhelminiae as parents will downsize their progeny somewhat, which tend to be easier to grow as well. Predacious is a name that comes to mind (adductum x glanduliferum). I can't recall of the names for philippinense x adductum or phil x glanduliferum/wilhelminiae...

    Jason,

    Paph Addicted Philip is adductum x philippinense and it is a very attractive hybrid that stays a little on the smaller size because of the adductum.

    LOL! If I didn't give you guys a hard time about *something*, I'd be shirking my administrative duties!
