When repotting my Paphiopedilum Ho Chi Minh (delenatii x vietnamense) I found this runner which is about 5 to 6 inches long at bottom of pot. It is the first time I have seen anything like this when repotting paphs. Not sure which parent is responsible for this growth habit, but I have never seen it in any of my several delenatii crosses and most of my vietnamense plants or crosses are too immature to show this trait.

Yes, it is still going strong and putting out a new leaf. I wove the spindly little growth up to the surface and it seem happy as can be.
