This malipoense has been with me for a number of years and has bloomed three times in the last five years. The older growth would never stick around more than 1.5-2 years leaving it as a single-growth plant this whole time. I was wondering what the picture would be like inside the pot so I took it out of its pot last month. And wow~ I was ready to see a few sad looking roots but this was a good surprise! Plus, there were two new growths starting for the first time but I managed to snap one off. A few long seconds of cussing out loud followed. A395D7FA-6AE8-4D23-A6C3-7616545E7730.jpeg

Wish all of my paphs. had roots like that. As far as the new growth snapping off, we have all done it more times than we care to admit.
