    Paphiopedilum Transvaal

    Of all my Paphs, this one is the hardiest one. It has taken everything nature has thrown at it and kept on growing and blooming. Its the most consistent in its performance. My only complaint is that the dorsal petal always stays cupped. Always produces two flowers. I will move it to...

    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.
