Yeah, this one is extra special with the color and the arrangement of those spots. My other ones had much darker, nearly chocolate colored makrings in the form of dotted lines and spots just like godefroyae. And I like those for different reasons. This one somehow pleases me the most.Wow, that's a really feast for the eyes, great shape and stance and these reddish spots on white ground are wonderful. When I read the name of the thread didn't expect such a beauty. Congrats
I wouldn't mine sharing a piece since this is a nice little clump. The issue is that the growths are very tightly packed in together and I'm afraid any attempt at breaking them apart may result in some major damage on the plant.Those are just beautiful. Wish they were mine.
Marco, with regard to Complex Paphs (bulldog type) I have the same taste.....but this one is far away of bulldog type. Mystic Isle is almost a primary hybridNormally, I am not a fan of bulldogish type paphs. But this one is really nice. It looks so clean and simple.
I would wait until your plant is more mature and then make a division when sections are easy to pull apart. It's never a good idea to break paphiopedilums into too small pieces.I wouldn't mine sharing a piece since this is a nice little clump.

Have you chopped up clumps of brachys?? Both of my Mystic Isle are tightly packed little specimen.
I tried once only to end up breaking a couple of leaves off.
The leaves on these plants are nothing like other paphs. Thick and flesh, so they easily break in half instead of getting bent.
Neat, I seem to have converged upon the same conclusion. My Paph collection is mostly Coryopedilums and Brachypetalums.I think you can definitely fit a few in between your multies. They should take pretty much the same culture I would think.
Warmth, humidity, and light. only that these are a lot smaller.
