    Lady Isobel or Godiva? :-)

    I just bought this plant. The seller only advertised it as stonei but when I asked more details, what it was my surprise that it was a cross with rothschildianum, so I knew it was a Lady Isobel, a hybrid that I wanted very much. From tip to tip it measures 95 cms and the flower from 13 to 14...

    Paphiopedilum barbatum var. nigritium ‘pygmy’

    Ok! And days ago I saw a new bud growing between leaves. It seems to me that this species is very attractive with its leaves and overall harmony with more than one flower blooming. Very nice!

    Paphiopedilum barbatum var. nigritium ‘pygmy’

    I thought the same, expecting a darker form. Nigritium = black

    Phragmipedium schlimii

    Ok! Interesting experiment. It would be the first time that a smelling was not revealed to me, I smell everything, I am fond of fragrances and one of the things that rounds off the beauty of an orchid, is that it smells. Thanks!

    Phragmipedium schlimii

    Oh, yes are right. I think, I feel that I shouldn't be so desperate and wait for the plant to take its time and check on other bloomings. Anyway, the plant and flower is very cool! Thank you for your lines! You are kind.

    Phragmipedium schlimii

    I bought the bare root plant with a spike at the end of April and since then it had two flowers. I guess due the environment changing the black tips appeared, but now I see new growths between the basal leaves and stopped the black tips. A third button is forming.I really appreciate your culture...

    Phragmipedium schlimii

    I bought it because it seems smells like roses. But no 😞 fragrance. It started to have black leaves tips on the first days. I read Phrags requires more watering and humidity than Paphs. Now it seems all is fixed, having new base growings and it had 2 flowers and a third is forming right now. It...

    Paphiopedilum niveum

    So cute! And very close to the flowers, I perceive a smelling, earthy one (I mean like roots, example vetivert, but not vertivert at all but in that classification, It isn’t floral) maybe because there are two flowers and it is more evident.

    Paphiopedilum Lebaudyanum

    UPDATE! All open, but the first wilted when I was waiting that the last open well. But still a wonderful blooming.

    Paphiopedilum concolor

    Oh, yes... to me it smells like butter. Even more, I think due smelling, the second flower was bitten by an insect :(

    Paphiopedilum concolor

    Paphiopedilum concolor 'Account' x sib It smells like butter! It grew two buds, but the first one opened and I think because of the butter smelling, it attracted some insect that damaged the lip and after about two weeks it withered. But the second bud remained and is now in its splendor. FS...
