    Love that hair! Did you mean the flower can last up to a year?

    When these paphs were first discovered , in the late 1800s - at the height of orchid mania, the collector told Fred Sander( The great Orchid King - supreme trader, with a huge orchid nursery in Belgium and another in UK) that it could have more than 30 flowers - but only one or two at a time , and he must not say it was multi -flowered, but rather say "successional " .
    New discoveries were sold at auction. Fred duly ignored the collector-and advertised it as sensational new Cyprepedium ( which is what they were called back then ) with 30 or more flowers.. The old flower spike was there to see ; what no-one could see was that the spike had developed over possibly a year or two ( I have had them take 18 months ) flowering one at a time, occasionally two, sometimes taking a week with not flower before the next one, and so on.Needless to say, it sold for what in todays money would be a small fortune.
    Very astute, people said - at least slightly dishonest is what I would say.
    By the way I knew Sanders grandson ( now passed on ) who was in the orchid business,in UK when I started growing. I will not speak ill of the dead, but I fell out with him on more than one occasions about his descriptions of plants I had bought from him. He thought it was funny to deceive and get away with it, I did not.
