Blooming Paph spicerianum

I have been waiting for this little fella(or girl) to finish opening before showing her off. I just took the attached picture. I received the plant in March as part of this project, let it rest for a couple of weeks then up-potted it on 4/10. It has two new growths on it also so I am hoping that next year it will bloom on those.

Such a pretty bloom. I'm glad that everyone got them to bloom. What success.

Get one Nenella!!!!! You have our permission!

It must be a very easy grower/bloomer if I got one to bloom as my first paph.

It's definitely going on my list also, I saw one in bloom at Marlow's last weekend and they look even better in person. Too bad the one he had wasn't for sale.

I've noticed there are 2 threads now about blooming spicerianums. Take note: late autumn/early winter seems to be flowering time for them! I have to say I love this species. It's so quirky.
