    Default Paphiopedilum dianthum in bud

    I'm very excited about this species in spike because it's a first time bloomer. I'll post another pic when all the buds are open. Buds are nice to look at, too!

    Of course I had to go do another image search before posting, so I could see what you were expecting!

    That's a very cool picture - interesting to me that the buds seem very different on this than on some of your others. Very close together.

    Yes, you're right it doesn't look anything like the other multifloral because it is a in a different group, Polyantha, same group as lowii and haynaldianum.

    Thanks, Jason! Sorry to hear about your parishii. My parishii is in spike right now, also a first time bloomer.

    I like the white dorsal on this, and the pouch looks very heart shaped in the pictures I've seen. I look forward to seeing yours blooming, Pete!

    Oh yes, me too! The spike is much longer now and the buds are swelling and getting larger. My parishii is also in spike! Yippee!!

    I've been snooping around the archives again - should really not do that! Looking forward to the parishii too.

    That is going to be yummy when it blooms..you will owe me a keyboard when you post the picture of it blooming!

    Is it a compact grower? Can you give me some names that are multi-blooming and smaller? Thanks!

    Gilda, yes, they are compact growers if compared to the much larger multifloral Paphs but these will get large in time with many growths and will take up space.

    If you want a smaller sized multifloral Paph, then you should get a Paph wilhelminiae. They remain small but a little trickier to grow for newbies. I did post a pic here in the display area, just scroll down below. Maire liked it so much that she got one for herself.

    Heather, no I have never posted pics of my parishii. Pictures are misplaced along with many other paph pictures and I didn't have a digital camera back then.
