I've had this Paph. hsinying x charlesworthii bloom with a single flower for a couple of years now. This year it has produced two flowers from the same sheath. I have seen multiple flowers on a single stem, but they were all separate. Both look like they will bloom albeit the bottom one smaller. Is this odd or just one of those things that can happen

I think it is something that just happens. My psychopsis will do that once in a while.

I don't see it as odd either. Perhaps it had a good growing season.

Well here is the latest

The top bud seemed to grow while the lower bud went on hold. No growth but not blasting either
Then the "top" bud bloomed. Again, it seemed that the second bud, peeking through on the bottom right, stopped growing while the top one grew and bloomed.

Then it was the lower buds turn Now look. It is so impressive, coming out of the same sheath, let alone the same stem.

Not sure if it is a common occurrence, but it is very nice! Thumbs up
