I had a Paph that did that and roots would die…refused to bloom! Took it to Paph expert and he said he had never seen the like and short of mounting it sideways on sphagnum, it couldn’t root from the nodes which he said was necessary to get more blooms. He said it basically climbed out of the pot, and genetically was all wrong! I can’t remember what the breeding was but had a lot of red in the flower

I was up buying 4 bags of bark at a local nurseryman and he gave the plant to me. I've only had it for a day.

Looks like etiolation to me. I wonder if they had it in a really dark area and it was just climbing towards the light. Chlorosis is also a characteristic of etiolation which makes me think it’s this.
