Between baby, work, COVID and a stream of daycare illnesses invading our house, I have not had much time to post or even take pictures lately. I had a quick moment to snap a shot of this first time bloomer, Paphiopedilum Worthy Sky (Western Sky x charlesworthii). I purchased a compot of these these from Hillsview in October 2019. Being 75% charlesworthii, it is about what I expected. The flower is much larger than the charlesworthii that I have bloomed, and it bloomed more easily. I am not posting this because it is a great flower but because I think others on the forum have this cross also. I will take additional pictures if the form changes but I am thinking next blooming will be better. Other seedlings are in bud so I will post those as they bloom... as best I can ;)

It was open for 5 days when I took this picture. So far it has kept its shape. I still have 2 or 3 to bloom. Another one is well on its way to blooming.
@richgarrison if you have picture of yours I would like to see them.

@Guldal Thanks for the lovely compliments!
