    First flowering seedling - second bloom blasted but this one is huge. I really like it but I purchased it as fairrieanum for a fair amount of money. Shame, I love fairrieanum!

    Shame on the vendor for selling you a Paph. villosum var. laichaunum.
    How long have you had it and will the vendor send you a replacement fairrieanum?

    I've had it several years and I'm sure the vendor wouldn't want to replace it after this length of time. I'd choose fairrieanum over this any time but am pleased that the flower is so pretty. I'll make a note with your suggestion on the variety. Thanks!

    Most welcome. Let me know how long the flower last. Apparently villosums can bloom for 60 days! So far, my fairrieanum "Pankot' is in bloom for over 3 weeks now.
