    Paphiopedilum St Swithin (philippinense x rothschildianum)

    I have had this Paph. for about one year and I really adore it. It has flowered for the first time, and it has five buds on two spikes. It would have had six but I accidentally knocked one off. I have nicknamed it 'Lucu' after my favourite tiger, due to the stripes on the flowers. Kate.

    Phragmipedium long-petalled hybrid, please help identify

    I acquired this Phragmipedium hybrid yesterday, it had no name on the label. I was really attracted to it due to the pink hue with the green, that the veins are not too prominent on the pouch and the plant vigour. Personally I think it most resembles 'Leslie Garay' (caudatum x longifolium), or...

    Paphiopedilum Toni Semple album (watercolour painting)

    Here is a small watercolour painting I have just completed. It is of my P. Toni Semple album (lowii album x haynaldianum album). It took me much longer than expected because I have been very distracted by trying to find my missing cat (Fabi), who has been lost since 12th Feb. now.
