    Finally secured enough plants of this wonderful species to create a group shot. One of my favourite species of all time. The only one missing from this pic is an album form lol. purpuratum family 2019.jpg

    Thanks all! The flowers are longer lasting than I realized. They are kept cool at night around 16-17C.

    Omg!! It is my MOST favorite species!!!!! The only plant of which I would like an album form. We should go in together on a flask when Sam Tsui recreates an album! I could never have too many of this species. Great photo and thrilling to see somebody else who loves this beauty.

    Beautifull display!

    I tend to favour the two middle flowers slightly receded. And I wonder, whether the fatter pouches on the two front ones on each side look like that irl, or whether their look is the effect of an optic/photographic illusion? As it is, in my eyes the middle ones might not be as big as the other two, but have a more overall proportionate look (but that's just my personal taste!).

    Kind regards, Jens

    I actually have no preference for the shape of purpuratums. All of them are beautiful to me. It's their commanding stance and deep colours that appeal to me. I have a few more in bud and hope they open while this group is still in bloom.

    As for the purpuratum albums, it is so hard to find. I looked for 3 years for them (US, Taiwan, Japan, Europe) and finally found one from Paph Paradise, coming this week! A small seedling but I'm so excited! If it blooms I will self it!!!

    Hmm I didn’t see them on Paph Paradise? Lucky you!! We seem to have the same aesthetic affinity for this wonderful species!

    Just received the purp album seedling from Paph Paradise tonight. Wish me luck LOL. Hopefully into 2-3 years it may bloom for me.
