LP means leave span. Yes, there are lots of paphs in spike now in my green house as it is the blooming season for my multi floral Paph collection.It really is a big fine plant and great flowers. Wonderful! Great growing! I saw from your pictures, that you have also other Paphs blooming and some other orchids. There were one with orange flowers. Sorry to ask, but what does that LP mean?
I think it is extremely difficult for a cultivated kolopakingii to produce more than 10 flowers per spike. It is not impossible but extremely difficult to achieve. I think 8-9 flowers per spike is the maximum count for my clone as you can see it is already a well matured plant that growing robustly in a huge clump with shiny leaves. The count may only be increased a little bit up to ten if all nutrients concentrates on one single spike but not diversified to two or three spikes each time.Thank you Camellkc for the info. Hopefully one day I will remember all these shortenings and what they mean.
Your kolopakingii has already very good amount of flowers per spike. I remember reading, that it can make/produce from 5 to even 19 flowers per spike. That last amount must be some kind of record, but 14-15 is possible. They say, it also has the argest amount of flowers open at the same time in the genus. And is one of the biggest plants too. Yours is already very big in size.
