Among all my old Paph.insigne collection, i discovered a giant clone, comparing it with typical ones.
As my sister was the responsible for last repotings i could see that some clones were mixed up, as she loves seeing pots full of plants 😂
So, my job this year is to isolate different stable clones among typical ones.
Here are some pics of this plant.

Harefield hall is a giant clone. Do you know where yours originated?
I just now discovered this article from the responsabelity of this forums about this species, here it is:
And here is the pic of the same clone i am calling "Giant", here as Cypripedium insigne var.montanum.
Was it wrong if i labled it as Paphiopedilum insigne var. Montanum?
