Leslie, on the first glance it will be a stunner after expanding. 👌 Looking forwad to seeing more photos.

Blooming like clockwork for mid-winter blues, this flower is finally opening after a long delay:.......
I hope midwinter is over and spring is knocking at the door.....at least here.....but unfortunately this is only my wish.

I'm in love with green flowers, yours Is a pleasure for my eyes. Hirsutissimum always fascinated me but I have yet to see mine first flowering. I take a seat and enjoy the show!

I grow this one at the coolest spot next to the balcony door that I open to chill down to 10-12C fall/winter nights. They light bright 2500 fc lights. And hot summers.

My temp range seems good but the light is a surprice.
2.500 foot-candle of sunlight is about 500 PAR-PPFD (µmol/m^2.s) ; that is about 5 times the 90-100 PPFD I normally give my paphs... that's huge, wow

Hmmmm maybe that high… like cattleyas. But increase slowly until leaves are bright apple 🍏 green.

Cute! I'm not too fond of the colored variety of this species but the album one really catches my eyes.
I still slap my head for not getting one or two from SVO a few years ago when they offered this at low price. Stupid me!!
