They can be slow for sure! That's why I have to teach these orchids patience.

Only kidding hehe. Actually - once they're going ok and part of the family ..... they'll just do their own thing and keep growing a bit each day - and they will eventually get there to the flowering stage and give us a nice surprise!

Consider it as a feature instead of a drawback!

DC, if you have NOIDs, send pix or links to pix... often leaf shape (and markings if present) can give a clue as to at least which group the Paph is in, which in turn can give an indication of culture needs.

Nice to hear you are a big fan of Saint Swithin paphs too!

Just took a pic of it this morning - as it may have opened up fully now. And also before anything like grasshoppers etc decide to do some chewing!!!!! So better get a pic first at least.
