    Love this paph. Staminode a bit wonky. Prob was too dry at some point. Reminds me of Kirk Douglas with the cleft in the chin.

    Congratulations on blooming it. I've seen many of these grow into giant bushes without ever once setting blooms.

    Wow, I did not know this, I had another years ago but it died in my mass murder I did years ago. It bloomed easily , too. I bought this one at the Asheville orchid show 3 years ago, when the Taiwan growers were there.

    That is nice Gilda. I have to agree with the stubborn blooming habit this cross is known for.
    I have never gotten this far!

    You're welcome. It's taken several years for me to be non- chalant regarding my orchid mass murder.
