    And there are those who say Paph hermannii isn't attractive. Clearly they are blind.

    Is this similar habitat to the Paph helenae you posted recently?

    From seeing this in situ, would you say that it is a valid species or a natural hybrid?

    Very lovely. It looks like they are growing on cliffs. Is that correct?

    No, even hotter

    I think this is valid species because the population very large and just only this hermannii and concolor. Do not have any other species look similar like henryanum

    This one just quite similar to hirsutissimum, everywhere not only on cliff

    I think if it was a hybrid between henry and hirsu the pouch would be peppered with more brown although the leaves show characteristics of both

    Dear Mr. Canh! Many thanks for pics and comment, you helped me to undertsand, too, that it is a natural hybrid or not. Your description about its habitat, population uniformity and surrounding other species made it clear that it is a valid species. Many thanks again.
