The last Paph tonsum that I bloomed was pretty green. This one is from the same group that I purchased, but is a much more typical color. Its a nice big bloom, and the plant is surprisingly large, too.









Hope you like the photos!

Very nice one, was in the trade before as tonsum var. curtisiifolium. One exporter though in the 80's that he found a big beautiful colony of curtisii, exported many plants, that turned out to be tonsum. This type is usually larger in size, and the flowers are lighter. The pattern on the leaves are more curtisii like.
