    My best Saint-Swithin. A division I bought it to Iweyshen some years ago.
    One year after, the 1st mature growth die just before to bloom because of a bacterial problem. I treated and saved the plant with a little chance.
    Last year, I bloomed it for the 1st time with 1 spike.

    And this year, this incredible bloom! It's just a wonderful clone in my taste. First time I have a Paphiopedilum with 16 flowers...

    That is a freak'in phenomenal clone! It must of been a sizable plant to re-bloom so quickly after a bacterial attack!

    About the bacterial attack, it was in 2010/2011 I think. It bloomed for the 1st time in 2015 and again 2016.
    But yes, this clone is particularly vigorous.

    Hum... maybe from your screen... :poke:
