    I picked up this paph in 2007 from Durbash Orchids in Germany. The form was better on its first blooming. I am growing it very cool (low teens C). Maybe thats the problem. But it is a fast grower and free bloomer.

    And when I bought it in 2007

    Yes a bit of a difference. Now can you reach an inbetween temp for the next blooming?;)

    Interesting patterns.
    So will you try growing it a bit warmer next time?

    I can't find the parent, Paph Shining World listed, but the other parent, Paph Mingo, is a standard complex Paph, and that the spotting most likely comes from the villosum and boxalii in its genetics.
