    This plant was sent to me as a gift with a lost tag! I was said it is something between concolor or bellatulum, but if it is something else then..ok...:) TYIA

    If I saw those leaves I would be surprised if the tag did not say concolor.

    I see cilantro! Thus, agree with MadMan. Looks a little dehydrated too IMO- give it a good thorough watering.

    It was not in good condition when it arrived and I am afraid to water it, as usual, because of root rotting..!!! I have killed many paphs in such occasions!!! I will do my best...:)

    TY all for the info!!! I think it is a concolor too, but flower will tell for sure...:D

    Fair enough, then get the humidity up to rehydrate those leaves while the roots recover. Might want to give it a repotting too.

    I'd wash it w/ an insecticidal soap and isolate it before I add it to my collection. You know the saying, "Beware Greeks bearing Trojans!" :D
