My sister just had to get yet more orchids :)rollhappy:) and included a couple birthday presents for me. Calanthe Lucky Strike 'Dee's Amethyst' JC/AOS and Paph. amabile.

Here's a picture.

I love the leaves on this one.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, although it's not for a couple weeks yet. I'm hoping that the paph will bloom within the year since it's discribed as a large seedling. Does anyone know if amabile is a smaller species...I'm having a hard time believing that it's nearly mature enough. The vendor also said that it is a rare and seldom seen variety, which makes it very exciting.

My Paph amabile is a little larger than yours - 8 leaves, a 9th started, and about an 8.5" leaf span, and it hasn't bloomed yet. I'm hoping it will soon, though. It seems to grow pretty fast. It was about the size of yours when I got it last spring. And Happy Birthday!

Thanks for the info Helen! Sounds like mine has a ways to go before it blooms since it's so tiny yet. I'm noticing that it's growing out that leaf fairly quickly, dispite being repotted during the summer weather, and the colour has improved since this shot was taken.
