Default Anyone has a very slow growing maudiae??

My paph collection is mostly maudiae types.
All of them grow and flower well. Most of them flower twice a year and some seem to be on once a year blooming schedule.

This one particular vini paph I got in bloom in December 2011, has been very slow grower.
June 2012, it started one new fan and so far three leaves. just today I saw a new leaf was poing its tip just barely above the center.
I find this is too slow and unusual for maudiae type.

Anyone else has the same experience?

Maybe I should check this plant for virus that might be slowing it down?

It is Hilo Ruby Double Diamond and Hsinying Glory cross.
The leaves are rather thick and very waxy unlike typical maudiae leaves.

I am keeping this as it is my favorite vini. but been quite frustrating.

I have a tetraploid Sophronitis that is extremely slow growing, and your description of the plant made me think that this might be, but I am no expert. Perhaps someone who knows more about ploidy in Paphs will see this and give you a better answer.

Maudiae is a cross between lawrenceum and callosum (not sure I've spelt those right...). A Maudiae type will probably have those in and maybe some others, and maybe quite a few generations of crosses.

Vini means it's red/dark.

Maudiae type "usually" has a white and green striped dorsal and is like the one in your avatar. They can have green or vinicolored petals and pouches.

"Vinicolor" means "wine colored". So vinicolor is usually a maroon or red wine colored, as Rowangreen stated, it can also just mean dark. Like with Paph. delenatii v. vinicolor. It isn't maroon but is dark purple and different from the regular variety.

Lawrenceanum. I'm sure it was just a typo.

There are three main color groups in maudiae.

Mostly white and green flowers called Alba.
Some pin/red hue of different intensity and quantity on flowers called Calloratum
Very dark red/wine tone called Vini.

All these color types can have spots (with or without warts) and hairs, or completely smooth surface.

I loved green and white types, and they were the first paphs I ever bought and I still do if I see something that catch my eyes as there are HUGE difference in how they look. (these are mostly all seedling unless bought as divisions)
I do not like colloratum very much.
since last year, I developed love for vini, which is not commonly available.

You should try them if you find the flowers attractive.
These plants (well, except for the one I'm refering to in this thread) grow and flower well in the home environment. and flowers last from 1 to 3 months. very rewarding to have!
