this paph is quite rare and this is the first time it has flowered in many, many years. Originally it came from Melbourne, then it went to Savoy Orchids in Brisbane and from there it went to Dieter in Bundaberg and I got it some time ago. I was quite excited when it flowered and I like to share it with my friends at Slippertalk. Hope you like it too. Bernhard

OOHHH - Something one doesn't see!
Bernhard - I'm curious as to what the plant size is? Did it take after the topperii parent? Thanks

It's got really showy flowers and I like especially the coloration.

Best regards from Germany, GuRu

Dear goldenrose, when I first got the plant, it had two leaves 60cm long and a new shoot had rot in the middle. I repotted and it had a beautiful root system. everyday I squirt fertilizer on the roots but not the leaves. It eventually had six leaves on each side. Some leaves were as long as 75cms. I only leach all my plants (spraying water from top) once a week. I use 1 teaspoon slipper fertilizer to 8 1/2 litres water, every day on roots. 1 day a week I use vanda fertilizer. The plant was 75cms high. I staked it which was probably wrong as the flowers have to grow sideways. I will know next time. There were six flowers on it. Kind regards Bernhard
