I would like very much to have some mulitfloral paphs. so I am asking for recomendations.
Sounds good to me. My wilhelms have leaf spans of about 7 inches. But they are prone to have no more than 2 flowers per spike. There are compact varieties of phil, and laevigatum seems to be consistent. Some roebelini are reportedly small too, but all the ones I've got are huge.Adductum, wilhelminae, and phil v laevigatum are your compact multiflorals; for the "other multiflorals" (Pardalopetalum) look for lynniae, but good luck. AnTec has a great article on "Downsizing Multiloral Paphs" on their web site ladyslipper.com.
Rose, I would think they may stay smallish as has been said wilhelminae is small and St Swithin grown away from the tropics doesn't get overly large but I would think bigger than compact. I will all come down to culture in the end.Is anyone else finding the recommendation on Lyro Blackhawk confusing? The comments are that they bloom on small plants but I would think having St.Swithin as a parent, they are not going to stay/remain compact.
