A beaut!

How fast to develop from sheath?

Still waiting for my two to get the memo.

Thank you all.

Very nice...and big!
It is much bigger than I would have expected. Not sure it is the norm for that cross(batch), hopefully "Silence??"(the member whom I bought it from) would tell us about the size of his flower.

Beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing mine bloom in a couple of years (fingers crossed)

The flower has developed a little bit more after I posted the photo. The flower is a bit flatter and bigger, 5.5" wide/NS(~15cm) as of Jan. 12, petal width is larger too. I think it has completely developed now.

I like it... the petals hold horizontal very well. Great for breeding on this trait.

I like it too....The flower is far better in person. For some reason(shooting angle), the photos show some imbalance of the flower, which they are hardly noticed in person.

Beautiful! Especially the colours. Some day I will have one, too.
Years ago I bought one, unfortunately it was my second Paph, at a time when I still was busy to kill Cattleyas. So I confess, its death is probably on me, too.
