    The can only bloom when mature, but depending on the species/ hybrid yours could already be mature.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Some Paphs are small when mature, but you could also have a vigorous seedling that blooms the fastest.

    I bought a mini compot of Paph. fairrieanum plants several years ago and they had a wingspan of no more than 5" when they began blooming. That seemed to be their adult size. Dwarf Paph species are awesome.
