Thank you, it’s beautiful! Sounds like mine still has a way to go then. I have one from another source that is larger, so I’m hoping that one spikes this year. Any tricks or tips to get it to initiate a spike?2 growths. Largest leaf is 16 inches. In 4x 3.5 pot. From Orchid Inn 2 years ago as one mature growth.
I have 2 other stonei (different sources) that are also 2 mature growths and likely will not spike this year.
I wonder if I wait too long to repot from the original source. I worry that I’ll disturb roots but I water frequently and I think I need to repot for fresh media and keep in the same size pot to keep pot bound.
Finally moved the stonei for a photo of the entire plant for youSo exquisite! I am hopefully going to get this cross. Could you please perhaps post a photo of the entire plant? I am curious to see the size - I know you have stated the size numerically but I find it easier to gauge from a photo.
This is my favourite Paph. species.
It took me a couple of seconds to work out the pun!Being born a stone’s throw from this species habitat in Borneo, I can’t help but adore your plant and blooms. Thanks to all the members here who keep this species (and all the Borneo ones like rothschildianum, sanderianum, hookerae, et al) alive for all of us (and future generations) to enjoy and be in awe of their beauty.
I just realized I did a pun in my first sentence lol.
