Lovely blooms.

It's early for dianthum season. Well done.

I would cut off soon to let plant grow since its only one growth with 4 leaves. The flowers last a long time but will suck all the plant's energy.

Spectacular. Congrats.

Mine only had one flower last Spring and did not flower this year. I will enjoy looking at your photos in its place.

Is it considered P. dianthum or is it now considered P. parishii var. dianthum?

I like these limegreen flowers very much. 👌 But the plant is tiny to carry these two beauties.

......Is it considered P. dianthum or is it now considered P. parishii var. dianthum?
I looked up 3 sources and all 3 list Paph. dianthum as a true species. First Olaf Gruss in his new book at page 405 and the album form on page 413.
Second KEWScience and last but not least The Plant List.

Good job Guru! Thanks. I agree it is a smallish plant and it surprised me when it sent up a spike...then came two flowers.image.jpg
