    Congratulation!

    Maybe just me......I've read all your stories but how much you can trust the seller? To my eyes it looks so much like a hybrid......

    I didn't remove the plant from national park and I never been to Mulu before. Lol... I saw someone selling sandie on FB so I just order one from the seller. I wish I could have chance to see any paphs in the wild one day. My place here (home town) doesn't have any paphs in the jungle.

    That’s what I thought. Nothing about this plant looks wild-collected, at least not recently. My prize P. rothschildianum was collected from the wild — in 1955. I look for plants like this, that I can prove were collected and have been in loving cultivation for a long time.

    Well Calvin, that's a relief. I highly doubt sellers will collect wild plants when the line breeding plants are much more easier to secure, grow and bloom. And BT is correct, the leaves look very clean and wild plants will have all kinds of damage. In addition the linear upward growth of the very straight leaves, gives some doubt as to the provenance of the FB claims as 'jungle' origin.

    But I could be wrong LOL (seems to be my signing off waiver)...
