    Do you know why some of the leaves show variegation while others are solid green? BTW, nice flower. Mike

    Thanks all!

    I think that that particular leaf was just more exposed to the light.

    The beautiful helenae, this species carries its name rightly.

    helenae

    That is a lovely flower. I only grow one paph (insigne sanderae) but this species has made me buy a second.
    Popow has the alba cross between this and charlesworthii for sale. Just as cute as helenae but I'm hoping for it to be easier to grow in my less than perfect conditions,

    Thank you for the reply. I did not expect the growths of this species(some clones) would space this much........I just added this species to my collection few months ago.
