Nine years ago, at my first meeting at the Orchid Society of Western Pennsylvania, I fell in love with Paph. lowii. I bought a "seedling" from the speaker for $20 and thought that was expensive! HA! Little did I know....! Well, nine years later it has finally spiked! It has been in bud for over a month! It has me sitting on the edge of my seat! Well this morning...I saw the first crack of the bud! It is starting to open up! I can't wait!!! I will be updating this slideshow as it opens!
