Earlier this year in spring, I was lucky enough to secure a division of this plant from Glen Decker as I started my goal of collecting alba (or close to) forms of all the Paphs species. Surprisingly it bloomed for me this fall, and garnered an AM of 81 points at the recent October monthly judging in Toronto. What was different about this particular flower was the green dot on the staminode above the lip. It is bright green rather than yellow as in the other awarded aureums of this ilk. This contrast makes the flower more alluring and invites the admirer to appreciate it more. Well, at least to those who have seen it (like me). A pretty strong grower.
