    Damas,
    If your plant is from France, it could be from Mr. (Xavier Garreau de Loubresse) who is a member of this forum. I hope he will tell us more about this plant
    As far as I know, paph trantuanhii is from Sơn La Province, It would be a supprise if there is henryanum invole with this plant, Henryanum can be found at Cao Bằng, Hà Giang, Hòa Bình, so there is no where near this area !!! Also, Paph. gratrixianum can be found at Hoàng Liên Sơn, Vĩnh Phúc, Thái Nguyên, and barbi can be found at Sơn La, Lào Cai ... personally, i beleive this is a var aspersum plant.
    Also, Mr. Bùi xuân Đáng (from Cali) had recently visited Vietnam, I hope he has more info on this plant
    I hope this help a bit

    I had the feedback from prod (Nardotto e Capello) :

    "La plante arrive du Vietnam et il doit etre une variete du Paphiopedilum
    Tranliemianum"

    Translation : "Plant arrived from Vietnam. We believe it's a variety of Paphiopedilum tranlienianum"

    I guess we now just have to wait for the plant to bloom... :rollhappy:

    Well, it appears your supplier made that as "clear as mud"!:confused:
    I think the best thing to do is to divide the plant and send me half. When the two bloom will see if different continents has anything to do with it's identity!

    ok, here are my two plants for comparison... Paphiopedilum coccineum and Paphiopedilum trantuanii. Bot plants coming from the same nursery as Damas' plants...

    sorry, could not decide which picture was better for the comparison... so, I posted both :D

    P.S.- click on the picture, and you will be linked to my Flickr page. Once there click on "All sizes" (on top of the picture), for a better view...

    Trantuanii is not barbigerum x henryanum, the flowers are extremely different... On the other side, I have seen several coccineum x henryanum, jungle collected, in Son La last year, blooming around october...

    Have you ever seen it? I have not been able to find any pictures, which I could call reliable... Even the picture posted at the beginning of this thread are sometimes posted as barbigerum var. XXXXX...
