Today my godefroyae album that I thought was a leucochilum album was awarded 80 points AM by the AOS Toronto Judging Centre.

I only figured out it was godefroyae when I prepped the plant this morning and saw the label lol. Silly me 😇.

It’s named ‘Double Happiness’ because it carried two flowers on a sturdy stem. NS 7 cm.

Leslie, lovely flower and strong plant. 👍 You know, I could have predicted she to be Paph. godefroyae album....you know my attitude in the dispute between Paph. godefroyae album vs. Paph leucochilum album (which in my eyes doesn't really exist).

Thanks all.

David, these warm brachies like godefroyae, leucochilum and niveum need warm winter nights to survive without sulking. Minimum temperature is 18C nights in winter.
My temperate GH does not provide the perfect environment for this group, but my heating mat did a good job keeping the roots of my brachy warmer.

Hehe I remember well our convos. In this case, you were right all along!

Gorgeous, Leslie. 🥰 Congrats on its well deserved award!

I'm all in with you on this one, Rudolf... and not only what the album form concerns! Would make much more sense to me, if the leuchos were subsumed under godefroyae - and the ones with a pure white/creamy outside slipper only considered a colour form, i.e. P. godefroyae fma. leucochilum.

I gather, we have here that rare species, the taxonomical joke! 😁 Joking aside, what can I say but: quod erat demonstrandum!

they survive lower night temperatures ( 10-15 C ) here in Northern Thailand very well,
but better be on the safe side
what I found out is , that all Paphs grown in the warmer parts of Thailand will flower a month early there

beautiful flowers , Leslie
