Paphiopedilum Orchid-Blackberry Magic


Paphiopedilum Orchid-Blackberry Magic

I couldn't resist posting another picture of my orchid. It's the one and only flower this plant will ever have.

It’s a really elegant one, Paul. Beautiful colour and markings too.

Does it have offshoots/fans for next year?

That's amazing. Why do they only have the one flower Paul?

Thanks. It's a terminal flower spike Linda. The flower will last for a couple months and the whole plant starts to fall apart. Sometimes they send of off shoots, and they need 2 years to mature. I don't see any off shoots on this one - yet.

I hope you get some new shoots Paul, it's a beautiful orchid.

This one already had a flower spike when I bought it. I just had to give it bright light and keep it watered. I've always wanted one of these - different than the ubiquitous moth orchid.
