A noid paphiopedilum
My noid paph is big, healthy, with many roots (for a paph) and many leaves. But a year has passed since I purchased it in bloom, and it hasn't reflowered for me. For a while I had been excited about its newest growth, but that turned out to be just another leaf. That brings the leaf total up to 8.
Yet another new leaf
When a mature and healthy orchid fails to bloom, the culprit is likely to be insufficient lighting. Getting my noid paph to a spot where it can get more light turned out to be a tricky issue, however. My lower shelf is set up to accommodate my 2-foot tall oncidium. This leaves a smaller orchid like the paph too far away from the light source. On the other hand, my upper shelf is too close to the lamp. If I were to move my paph to the top shelf, its tallest leaves would be in contact with the lights (sure to guarantee burn damage).
I ended up rearranging most of my orchids, and repurposing an unused knife rack to prop up my paph by 8 or so inches. Hopefully that will help. At the very least, my orchids are now more efficiently arranged.
