Default How long do I wait???

I have now 4 paphs in my collection all different kinds. I love the. I even love the leaves. With the exception of my big yellow bulldog paph it's leaves are out of controls and too long.

Any ways how long does it take for them to rebloom. My oldest one has new growth growing well but it's not mature yet. My big bulldog paph came with more mature growth I thought it would be quicker to bloom because of that.

One I just got and it is in bloom the other is a 3 year old seedling that never bloomed. Do these have a season? Will it take a year for them to flower again? What can I do to help. They get a temp change from night to day of 5-10 degrees they never fully dry out but I don't keep them swamped I feed them but only 2 times a month. They are in and east facing window.

What's the average time to wait for blooms?

It depends on the Paph. Once a year is usual. Is it sequential?

Orchids grow very slowly.

In my experience... niveum and related species are spring/early summer bloomers and will bloom once a year.

yerba buena will probably act like most bulldogs and bloom in the winter on any mature growths (so you've probably got a few months to go there.

Supersuk X Raisin pie should bloom on every new growth as they mature. You should expect about 4 mature leaves per growth before a bloom comes.

I dont have much experience with delanatii... sorry to say.

The first three should bloom in season on the new growth. How large is the delenatii? I assume at this point it is still a single growth?

It has 2 good size growths but one tiny baby growth I think might have been the very first growth. I feel like it should spike soon.

It's a spring bloomer, so generally it's past it's season. I give mine a bit more light than other mottled leaved Paphs and keep it a bit dryer. Does it get a temperature drop during the winter?

I will water it less. It is in a south facing window but in the shade. Oh yes my house drops temp at night. Maybe next spring It will bloom I got it in April it was shipped to me than.
