    Cypripedium lichiangense

    I had a request to post an image of this plant despite its lack of bloom. I have had it for about 5 years. The first 2 years it was only a only single growth plant without a bloom. In 2016, it had a single growth and a bloom (posted on this site). Last year and this year it produced two...

    Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum comeback 2018

    I have finally gotten my photsharing hosting service to work. It was out for several months and lost several of my images. I think that it's working well now. In any case here is this year's effort from one of my favorites. It's up to 23 flowers on 15 growths with 9 growths that have two...

    Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum comeback

    Here is this year's effort form a plant that I have had since 2008. It was doing very well and then last year it had only 5 flowers. This year it's up to 11 flowers. Not quite where it was, but on the mend. I guess that we're all allowed to have bad years. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    Paphiopedilum gigantifolium

    A first bloom seedling for me. The plant is 36 inches tall and 32 inches wide. Each flower is about 3 inches across and 4 inches tall. I have never seen one in bloom in person and was anticipating much smaller flowers. To me, the flowers are pretty large for a multifloral species...

    Paphiopedilum sukhakulii

    Paphiopedilun rothschildianum 'Charles Edwards'

    One of my favorite roth clones. Very vigorous plant with flowers that have not been "homogenized" according to modern standards. The top flower is 32 inches from the top of the pot and the plant is 37 inches wide. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    Paphiopedilum praestans

    I hate to be guilty of posting the same plant too many times, but this is one of my favorite species. I bought it from Spencer Howard Orchid Importers about 25 years ago. I think that it was a wild-collected plant. The spike is 25 inches tall and the plant is 37 inches across. The image was...

    Cypripedium lichiangense

    I bought this from Post Hill 3 seasons ago. The first two seasons it only grew two very beautiful leaves each year. This is its first bloom for me. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    Here is probably the last of this year's flowers on this one. It has been in bloom since September. The flowers are 4.25 inches wide and the pouches are 2.25 inches wide. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    Cypripedium parviflorum var. parviflorum

    This year, this plant has only 5 flowers while last year it had 17 flowers. This year it only has 15 growths while last year it had 19 growths. The positive seems to be that it is at least 3 inches taller this year than last. I hope that it's just a temporary rest from its prior impressive...

    Paphiopedilum stonei var. alba

    I purchased this as a seedling from Paphiness Orchids about 5-7 years ago. It grows much more vigorously than my regular stonei. This is its first bloom. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    Paphiopedilum parishii

    This is one I have had for at least 20 years. It had a setback with a mite infestation 5 years ago and this is its first bloom since then. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG]

    I thought that I'd add mine to the supardii fest that's happening now on this site. [/URL][/IMG]

    Cypripedium segawai

    Here is my third year of flowering this plant. The first year it flowered with one growth and one flower, then two growths with two flowers, now four growths with four flowers. I hope that the geometric progression continues. [/URL][/IMG]

    Paphiopedilum kolopakingii

    This is its first bloom for me. I know that it's an easy plant for most, but I had to bring it back from a mite infestation. It's been 6 years and it finally did its thing. [/URL][/IMG]
