This cute paph fowliei v album is in bloom a second time for me. Included first bloom photo to show the progression. This plant was a happy surprise freebie with an eBay order early in my paph journey that taught me the importance of only buying from great growers šŸ˜‚

Form not too great but as a freebie itā€™s fantastic!
Right?! As a novice, I tried straightening the bloom with consistent lighting so good culture learning besides realizing crappy sources = crappy orchids. It will never win any awards!

But the bloom trend is towards a better flower, so maybe next year it will gets its act together ,).

So never say never!

The most important thing isn't to win awards ... but if you like the flower and if so, everything is o.k. .... Good luck with it. šŸ‘
