Just wanted to share with you all. It sits directly behind my neos in front of a fan an area that I consider subprime but it seems to love it. This paph is my quickest growing paph species! I would even go as far as to say quicker than some of my phals.

This was when I picked it up at in November last year



This is it now



Just curious as to what LS these typically have to be at to be considered blooming size?

Thanks

Nice growing! I had heard they were pretty slow growers, but you seem to have found it a spot it likes.

Hey Marco,

I've never seen one bloom on a single growth, but I've only ever seen a few of them bloom, so that might not mean anything. That growth looks like its really close to being mature, though.

That mature growths on my plants measure approx. 14-16 inches.

When the second growth starts, you will be withing a few months of seeing a flower stem on the older growth. Easy species to grow, not a common Paph anymore. We need to get a few seed populations started again.
