    Congrats on bringing it back to the land of the living!

    Are the colours so dark and saturated irl as they look in the pic?!

    Kind regards, Jens

    That is a rare darker form of the species. Happy you saved it
    A straight dorsal to boot!

    Wonderfully colored one! Good save. hopefully it will stay healthier.
    I had one paph that was growing and blooming well, then, suddenly, all the growth except for one tiny new growth died back.
    That little growth took nearly two years to get up to a decent size now. Strange things happen I guess.

    What a lovely P. dianthum, good it survived. Lovely dark colouratio and a flat dorsal. Congrats. Many dorsals of this species are slightly turned.

    No, the original tag went away long ago and was replaced with a basic one of mine with just the name. I don't even remember where I got it, sorry.
