I like very much richardianum. Not so common but as it is a fast grower, you can more frequently fin growth division

Is it true that these tend to be smaller plants that lowii ?
Cheers,

Nice to see the real thing. Pay close attention to the fine hairs on the inflorescence and flower, shorter and less hirsute than lowii, but stil present unlike the completely glabrous Paph. lynniae. Here's a shot, again from the dark ages of digital photography, of the inflorescences of Paphs lynniae, haynaldianum, richardianum and lowii (highland). Sorry the plants are not in the shot:

Hello Bob,

Your photo is really good for comparisons, on the one hand distinct differences like size and flower shape of the pictured species and on the other hand of the rapid progression in digital photography.

Best regards form Germany, GuRu

Me too, or neither.

Do you have a source? Don't see too many of these around. I think I like it even better than lowii.
I'm looking for one too. I know a grower in E Tennessee that has one, but I haven't checked with him in the last year or so to see if he has any divisions.
