This Paph. Orion's Belt opened up yesterday. This is the second time this seedling has bloomed for us, and this time the flowers were even larger than the first time. This clone has had the largest flowers in this cross. The flower width is 13 cm, with 7 cm large petals that are 6.4 cm wide. Paph. Orion's Belt is Paph Muriel Constance (a brachy) x Paph. emersonii.

Are the petals different sizes in the first flower or is it the camera angle? The second kicks booty! I like!
