A beautiful flower. What do your min temps get down to in Honolulu?
We’ve had a cool spring (for Hawaii), particularly our overnight temps. I would say low 60s F. That is combined with humidity running 60-70% and higher. We have also had decent trade winds, but this particular Paph is pretty sheltered from rain and high winds. It’s just starting to warm up a bit.

Great flower. Very short spike though.

Still .... So so jealous lol. Still waiting for mine to bloom, even sticking them to 50F/10C nights.

Kate whats in the clay pot?
PS. Outstanding flower
Hi Rick, Thanks! I’m pretty sure it’s just old NZ sphagnum moss with moss growing on it in a 4 inch clay pot. I might have tossed a white river rock in the middle. Like many of my plants, it was due for repotting - but then I noticed it was spiking. I have 2 other armeniacum that I moved to a different potting style/media relatively recently. They are doing great, but no flowers.

Beautiful, and such a cheerful, spring color. I’m beginning to get jealous of how well everything seems to grow in Hawaii, parvis, multifloral paphs, phrags, cattleyas...the list goes on. Nice growing!
