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!

Named after one of my favourite films.

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.
‘It isn’t wrong to HOPE?’

A great line from the movie!

Beautiful!
Last year one of mine blasted, too. That one has now a bud again, hope it will last this time...
