    Esquilorei Esquire

    For the first time, this flower bloomed without his compatriots (usually all 3 plants bloom at once). So he gets to do his glamor shots alone. The second one is in sheath but the 3rd one has new growths but no sheaths.

    Paph. hirsutissimum alboviride/album

    Just opening... will get larger and more petal twisting... color glows like a fresh green alpine meadow. Maybe I'll name him 'Spirit of the Forest.' or 'Fuzzy' lol. The sibling received an FCC/AOS in Chicago in 2018 (Sam's Choice). More pics to follow when fully open.

    Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum forma alboviride

    I acquired this plant from Orchid Inn a couple years ago in bloom. It is the brother to the FCC that Sam got at the Chicago Orchid show. This is the best blooming so far with the petals well held with a NS of almost 13 cm and wide petals (2.6 x 7 cm), big dorsal (4 x 4 cm), and a cool apple...
