    Oto is a cross between Paph. fairrieanum and Paph Winston Churchill - in this case 'Indomitable' FCC/AOS

    This would be what I'd consider a "teacup" paph, and the flower NS is 3.75" (9.5 cm), and the entire plant is about 11" tall including its 2" pot.

    Nice, Ray. I really like the spotted toads...

    How much bigger do you think it'll get? They often increase in both plant and flower size, I think.

    I have no idea, Carl. This is the second growth, and first to bloom, and it's no bigger than the first.

    How old is this one? Do they usually bloom pretty quickly with proper care?
