Congrats to flower it, it's lovely. I'm always fascinated by the greenish 'butterfly' on the staminode and the purple 'polka dots' on the inside of the pouch. 👍

3 inch pot. I likely will reduce once repot if roots are small. Most of my slippers I prefer root bound in small pots but this came to me in 3 inch pot and I did not repot yet.

I cannot detect a fragrance. I have difficulty detecting fragrance from other Paphs that are to have one. Maybe it’s time if day or growth timeline when I try or just my olfactory sense.
I usually smell them mid-morning, 10-11. AFAIK not all of them smell - maybe 40%? - but maybe different plants smell at different times of day.

FWIW - the breeding strain that Thanh/Springwater has for sale has received several awards so far.
