    First time this blooms for me. I have a thing for these tiny species, and this just makes me smile.
    Second spike will be there soon.

    I like the small Paphs. too. The "halo" on the dorsal
    is especially nice.

    It's indeed a beauty - nice form and a strong and well grown plant. The white halo of the dorsal adds, as abax says, just that little extra. Congrats!

    Whence did you get it? (and btw: thanks for the in-toto-shots!)

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    Lovely one. Congrats. But it's flowering very early in the year. Usually the autumn is the main flowering season of helenae.

    Very nice color. So many seem to have that rusty color pouch. Yours is almost completely yellow. I love helenae and am trying to make as many new hybrids with it as possible.
