So update... nine months later this plant is reblooming. About the same size with deeper color compared to the first bloom. I’m surprised it’s doing it in summer and not late fall as most do. Not complaining though...

Presenting Paphiopedilum villosum var laichaunum ‘Web of Lies’ denoting the numerous versions (formas and variations) it had to go through before final classification.

Hi,
(My first post . . ., not sure about how to upload images, sorry). Based on this thread, it appears that my Paph. villosum is not fma. amnamense, notwithstanding the tag. On a positive note, it has a spread of 10.8 cm and this plant gave me two flowers on its second bloom.

Somehow I missed this post.

Nice bloom Kate (belated congrats) and welcome (belated again LOL).

Hi Leslie
Congratulations on the reblooming. I’ve got several in bud right now. Also, it’s taken me a couple years to get my villosum, awarded as var. anamense in 2018, re-classified as var. laichaunum. It took the first year for me to get the AOS to accept laichaunum as a variety after I provided all the available literature to them. Now after a number of emails this year they have changed my award to Paph villosum var laichaunum ‘Lily’ HCC/AOS. I just received the corrected award certificate last Thursday.

Finally! Thanks for your perseverance that subsequent same type will be judged correctly under this variety. I hope your Lily reblooms even better to get rescored, ideally to the AM it deserves.

Just a quick update. These villosums do flower a long time with no sign of waning. Wonder how long it will last. It’s in its 6th week now. I think the color gets deeper too?
