    Paphiopedilum charlesworthii fm. sandowiae (album) ‘Titan’ AM/AOS

    Rarely blooming in summer, the flowers are smaller and sulk (not a happy face lol from the side sticking tongue out of that staminode). But I’ll enjoy it despite its sullenness 😅. NS 8 cm DSW 5 cm A division from Hillsview.

    Paphiopedilum charlesworthii album ‘Titan’ AM/AOS

    Just opening with two buds plus 2 more low sheaths. Strong grower, a division from Hillsview Nursery (Theresa) I got about 4 years ago. Still expanding and will get much larger (the name gives a hint lol). Hopefully all opens together in a month?

    Paphiopedilum charlesworthii var. sandowiae (album)

    I got this multigrowth plant from Eggshells and it finally threw a single bloom after 1.5 years. A very reluctant bloomer for Eggshells that he finally gave up and sold to me. Just opening. Hope it flattens out.

    Last of the Charlies

    I present the last of the Taiwan charlesworthiis to bloom… luckily it didn’t blast like the 3rd one! Very round and flat dorsal. Color not too shabby.

    Paphiopedilum charlesworthiis First Blooms

    A few first bloom charlies from HungSheng are in bud and blooming. So far the first one looks typical of species. Let’s hope the next few may be have darker pink dorsals as they are selected line breeding.
