My Paph dodyanum beautifully blooms in my tropical garden. It's very heat tolerant and easy to grow. This is the second year in a row I have it bloomed, so far is the most flower-free Paph compared to other types. The mottled leaves make it eye-catching even with no flowers. I'm happy to have it in my Paph garden.

Indeed cool leaves.

Are flowers produced sequentially for a while?
Yes, the flowers are sequential. I usually cut the spike after the first one die-off to preserve the health of the plant. My friends told me this species can bloom around 7 flowers sequentially in total, much less than other types in the section Cochlopetalum.

It’s incredible.
