Paphiopedilum lowii ‘Uncle Frank’ x ‘Hsinying’.
I love this ethereal spike. Like floating… This year 4 flowers. 2021 were 5… It’s ok 😄

You have a nice one. I think from 6 to 5 is not unusual. Mine did the same thing. I believe they need to be large multiple growths before they show their full potential.

Nice color on this one, Mario. I've had lowii in the past but don't remember what sort of flower count I usually got. I'd have to go through old photos to see. It's to large for me to grow with my present conditions but always a favorite. Very nice.

Mario, I would be also pleased with these flowers, they have a good colouration and shape and 4 flowers at one spike isn't bad. 👍
