This species likes to blast in my conditions. I noticed that if I ignore it, it will develop nicely and open. If I even so much as to look at it, it will spontaneously abort. So I pretend it’s not there lol. And voila! It opened!

Nice one! Haven't had one of these in my collection in quit some time. They don't seem to be offered too frequently anymore. I particularly like the oblique shot.

I have about 4 of these and they are good growers, just shy or finicky bloomers. I really like them.

Magnificent. The species is more impressive than the crosses I have of it. I will try to pretend to ignore some of my difficult slippers and see if they spike/bloom from your experience of pretending this P. acmo is not in your collection!

Leslie, this is a very good P. acmodontum. Its shape is great without reflexed petals and the colouration is intense, Congrats. 👌

I don't grow Paphs., but I like this one because of the name. I love Amy Tan's
writing and THE JOY LUCK CLUB is one of my favorites.

Rest assured, it will in the end! I for my part just have to take a look in the mirror every morning...:eek:

and all the glory of man
as the flower of grass.
The grass withereth,
and the flower thereof falleth away."
