Looks like the reddish version. Nice contrasting green bos on staminode.

Do you grow with cool nights?

I have to take the weather as it is, monsun climate in Northern Thailand. Now its dry, sunny days up to 30C and cool nights down to 10Celsius.
In the mountains up to 2000m it can get close to 0C. We are at 400m.
I water with overhead sprinklers for 1-2min on every sunny day, because the air is really dry.
This time of the year is easy, later it stays dry but gets very hot , up to 40C.

At 10C nights is cool category for paphs. My tranlieanum is growing with 15C nights now in winter (with 3 very slow growing buds, first flower is on strike and opening extremely slow).

All your paphs are outside with these cool nights including the leucochilums and concolors?

Werner, this is a pretty reddish P. tranlienianum. Is this a single plant of this species or do you grow some more of it ?

Rudolf, its from a Thai grower from our area.
I got it end of 2019, my friend got one, too. His flower was a even darker tone, more brownish.
There should be more.
