Default Paph. Steele Magnolias cross

A nice size plant, has four blooms open and 2 still trying. This is a cross with leucochilum.

Keep thinking of splitting it up but then its such a show when it blooms. Next year I'm going to try to get it to bloom in April so I can enter it in our orchid show.

Carol it's stunning! I would NOT divide it. It is well on it's way to becoming a fabulous specimen plant.

Very nice. I think you should keep it as it is. As Terri said it's well on it's way to be a beautiful specimen plant.
