Okay, so it's not exactly roth 'MM' x 'Rex' and is probably not a huge deal for the more experienced growers but here's what my Paph philippinense var. roebelinii has (please excuse the dirty leaves)



I bought it last summer and it wil be its first blooming. I've been growing Paphs since last March and this is the first multi to spike for me.

Thank you guys, I'm really thrilled!

How fast/slow do the spikes on these guys develop?

Congrats...I love doing the spike dance...think I will do a few steps for you :D
I forget how long mine took when in spike last year. Maybe 4 weeks or so.

These guys are real fast. I noticed the bract about a week ago in about the same position as Elena's and today its over 10" tall with multiple bracts.

This clone has consistently produced spikes of 7+ flowers for me.

Thank you guys!

Rick, it appears that you are right, it's grown a fair bit in the last 3 days. I can only hope for 7+ flowers though :wink:
