    Paphiopedilum leucochilum album ‘MoonCake’

    Paphiopedilum purpuratum x sib (‘Full Wings’ x var. album ‘Albino Beauty’ CBR/AOS) selfed today!

    Today was day 3 from opening of this first-bloom seedling from Sam and my first-ever orchid pollination! Here’s hoping for success. Anybody want to give me tips on maturing the pod? Sam will be flasking but he grows in a phenomenally state-of-the-art facility, whereas I am but an...

    Paphiopedilum charlesworthii alba

    Blooming earlier ... not sure why but a few cooler growing paph species flowering are early (normally fall to spring aka September to March). Used to be my dream plant through the 90’s lol.

    Paphiopedilum amabile alba (syn: bullenianum)

    This one came in bud from Tokyo Dome show. Kinda small and floppy. But rare enough to keep. First bloom seedling from Popow. There’s an unbloomed second seedling that may have better flower in future lol. In a 4 inch or 10 cm pot.

    Paphiopedilum barbigerum var aureum ('Albino Beauty' x self)

    I got this one from Tropical Gardens in Vancouver in bud. What a cutie with small plant structure (leaves less than 10 cm each) with large alba 7-cm flowers (slight damage from transport in check-in luggage). Love the teacup style. Part of my burgeoning alba paphs collection.

    Earlier this year in spring, I was lucky enough to secure a division of this plant from Glen Decker as I started my goal of collecting alba (or close to) forms of all the Paphs species. Surprisingly it bloomed for me this fall, and garnered an AM of 81 points at the recent October monthly...
