Paph. in spike?? Male
Default Paph. in spike??

Heyy!!

Today I got in the mail my first paph.

The nursery I ordered it from said it was in spike. I'm looking at it now and can not tell if it is or not. (I'll post pix in the morning)

The name of this pretty little thing is Paph. Delenatii 'Pink Magic' x S. Gratrix Golden Slippers.

Where does the spike come out of and how can I tell if its a spike or not??

Thank you.

The spike comes out of the middle of the fan.

I think that the appendage that has the hairs along the edge in the beginning of a spike. Look at my paph bud:



It is the only thing with hairs on it. Looks like you have a flower on its way!
