    Paph. helenae

    Didn’t expect any of the plants I got from Orchid Inn a few months ago to bloom this year so this beauty is definitely a bonus 😊

    Paph. acmodontum

    I’m hoping to get more than one bloom at a time from this plant - maybe next time! It still doesn’t disappoint though, the colours are always incredible.

    Paph bellatulum

    First time bloom for this plant from Mark @ Elite Orchids, think it was longest time for a bud to fully open I’ve ever had, more like malipoense!

    Paph malipoense

    I know it will never win any prizes but it always feels like an achievement when this blooms!

    A Few Blooms

    Some paphs blooming just now, I can’t claim credit for the haynaldianum, it already had one flower when I got it but wanted to share.

    Paph. helenae ‘Dr Lee’ x sib. ‘Daya’

    Another helenae to add to the lots that are blooming for everyone right now.

    Paph. farrieanum x rungsuriyanum

    First bloom for this lovely plant, gorgeous colours, dorsal not as I would have liked but still very pleased. There is a smaller bud underneath so will be interesting to see the difference. I think this is now registered as Hanoi Fairy.

    Paphiopedilum leucochilum`Account Black Pearl sib x Account Red Dragon - Not!

    I bought this plant from Popow in April last year and have been waiting for it to bloom with much anticipation, so imagine my surprise and disappointment that this is what happened 😕 I’m not usually disappointed in flowering a bellatulum but I am this time. I understand these things happen but...

    Paphiopedilum villosum ‘Pale Giant’

    First time bloom for this one, it is pale but not particularly giant! Maybe with subsequent blooms they will get larger.

    Paphiopedilum chamberlainianum

    I’ve had this for 3 years and it has finally decided to put out some blooms, 2 out already and another 2 on the way so it seems to be in its stride now.

    Paphiopedilum Senne Calle

    First bloom for this, I don’t normally have more complex Paphs but I got this one from Roelke when the plant I ordered was unavailable - I’m liking the colours though 😀

    Paphiopedilum violascens

    First bloom for this, dorsal still to open a bit more but pleased to have got this far with it!
  15. HairBear73

    Paphiopedilum venustum

    Great first bloom, hoping the dorsal opens up a tiny bit more but love the colours

    Paphiopedilum helenae

    Can’t help loving the dainty blooms this species produces

    Paphiopedilum godefroyae var leucochilum

    All 3 plants are var. leucochilum though 2 have a couple of spots on the pouch which technically rules them out. Still one of my favourites though.
  18. HairBear73

    Paphiopedilum farrieanum

    Two blooms this time though they appear to not be speaking to each other and are facing opposite ways!

    Paph. sukhakulii gone wrong

    Has anyone had a similar odd outcome with a Paph. and what causes it?

    Paphiopedilum malipoense

    First bloom for this, waited for an extraordinary length of time as is typical of this one I believe but happy with the result
