    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.
