Now I can't wait for mine to grow up. I have a paphina crista 'Dark Star' X self. It only had 2 bulbs and when the leaves fell off, I thought, there she goes. The bulbs remained fat so I didn't throw it out and now it is starting 2 new growths.

How long do I need to wait for blooms? How large is your plant? Is it natural for the old leaves to fall off?

I know, lots of questions.
This time leaves also fell off ; I don't know why but I don't think these plants keep their leaves on a bulb more than one or two years (I've had mine for a little more than a year, so I can't tell much more, but anyway it has already flowered three times !).
The plant is pretty small compared to the flowers :


(A 2nd flower stalk is coming out.)
Thanks Axel! That's service!!
I didn't realize the plants were that small. I thought they were decidous?
