I was super excited to see this one opening. It was only been open for a day or so. So, I am not sure if it will open more, but I was too excited to wait. This is my first paph seedling to bloom from flask. These were pretty slow the first year. Then really took off the this year. This is the first one to bloom. There is one more in bud. As cute as a button.

Beautiful!!! I think the flower will still expand a little more. Usually it takes about three days for a paph to fully open. I would love to grow this species but my growing conditions are too warm. Your aureum form is especially nice. Congratulations!!!
