    This is one of my latest Paphiopedilum hybrids. Paphiopedilum Cimabue is from the mating of one of my most high estimated white Paphs, P. Saint Ouens Bay 'Cerritos' with P. helenae. I hoped that P. Saint Ouens Bay would pass on its wide outstretched petals but as we can see P. helenae is dominant in this trait.

    This plant is growing in a pot of 9 cm diameter. LS is 24cm, NS 7,2cm.

    To sum up, I'm very pleased with this result!

    Thank you all!
    I think I will add something with broad petals to the gene mix. Maybe some complex Paph with Hellas in its ancestry to keep the pastel colour. On the other hand some more Brachy-influence would be nice as well...
