    paphiopedilum aureum

    Will it open more than that? Lowii isn't normally so hooded.

    I'm totally in agreement with you. This is a cross that should never have been made, it just muddied up the identification of the Cochlopetalum section species.

    A couple of December bloomers posted a month late

    I just repotted it this spring and it's just beginning to send up a spike. I like to grow my plants into specimans and generally don't divide them unless they fall apart during repotting or need a piece removed for overall appearance. I will put your name on it though if a piece becomes...

    If you try folding back the dorsal in the second photo you'll probably split it. It's OK to do if you like the look better but some Paphs just have a dorsal the is naturally very cupped. It will probably always bloom that way.

    I finally had to remove the spike from two seasons ago that finally stopped blooming, so now it's back to just two again. Too bad because there were still brachs for the buds to form at the end of the spike. This is from this seasons spike. I don't remember it carrying three flowers at one time...

    2 thaianum, one scented

    Quit a difference in size. I like the overall proportions of the larger one.
