Beautiful, Bill! How long have you had this paph.? I am just starting to get interested in paphs and am wondering about which ones grow the best in your area (I am also in Hudson Valley) and which are the easiest to start out with.
Thanks for sharing the pic...enjoy your blooms!

Beautiful philippinense Bill! How old is this plant? I've really become quite taken with multi-florals. Too bad they get so big.

I've had this going on 2 years, this is it's 2nd blooming for me. It's hard to say what grows easiest. For me lowii seems to grow well and will do well on a windowsill. It does get rather large after a while. Delenatii is a fairly good grower and reliable bloomer also. I'm partial to the multi florals, they do well for me and there is something about the long twisty that just makes me smile.

Terri, It's at least 5 years old. It had bloomed once already when I picked it up from Orchids Limited about 2 years ago. It's a small plant for a multi, almost a mini multi. Leaf span is maybe 8 in., the spike is 10-12 in. It was in rough shape for a while but it's coming around now.
