It does have nice color flower count. They're not beefy flowers with the traditional flipped up petal tips giving that thin appearance but it does grow well without issues. I noticed yesterday the second fan has a bud spike down inside so I guess I'll have blooms into the summer.

So floriferous! Well done.
I was killing mine but I put it in SWC and it is slowly reviving.

Congrats in re-blooming this species. I find them growing well from seedlings but re blooming is still a mystery to me as the new fans starts to deteriorate in my culture.

Beautiful! Great flower count. Mine reblooms consistently every year. But always 3 or 4 flowers, never 5 flowers. Good job!_DSC2620 Paph. lowii.jpg

Last year it had 6 with an aborted attempt at #7. Maybe with some size to the plant I will get there.
