5. paph. appletonianum

the stonei, is 1 mature growth and 1 new growth... =) Btw, i do have several stonei primary hybrids... they are Lukluk (niveum x stonei) and Wild Thing (godefroyae x stonei). I wonder if they will bloom on a small plant (like the brachy parent) or on multigrowth plants (like stonei). Anybody have any idea?(",)

Well, they will make smaller plants than stonei...but they will have to be multigrowth before bloom...in fact, due to the differences between species, they may have to be multi-multigrowth before flowering....Now, its always possible to get a bloom on a single growth plant, or a small plant with only 2 growths..I have seen pictures of those. But for most of these types of brachy x multi crosses, its a long, slow haul....and the bloom, when it comes, may be a deformed disaster...or, it may be the most beautiful, spectacular paph you have ever seen! Take care, Eric
