8 blooms on three spikes. There were three other buds that blasted.

Also, I now know that I should stake it for the next blooming.

It's actually occurred to me, looking at the picture again –

It doesn't look like a Saint Low, does it? More like a Susan Booth or something?

What do you all think?

I can never remember the parantage of the Saintly paphs.

This one looks like its got lots of philipinnense with maybe a little wilhelm/praetens/glanduliferum in it. Maybe roth, but the staminode is not roth like at all.

I don't see any lowii influence in this plant.

Lots of cool flowers though.

Very beautiful. I kind of like the unstaked flowers, it is more graceful. Such a big healthy plant. Nice job.
