    The first one is a very small one. It is P. niveum ('Winter Sun' x 'Siam Snow'). It is a first flowering seedling NS is 4.5 cm, LS is 13 cm.
    Thanks a lot tpaphio!

    The next one is a sister of the first. It is bigger and VERY round.

    And here is a Paph. niveum from an other source. It is less round but bigger. NS is 8.5 cm

    I like them all just because they are P. niveum!

    I like the first one the best.
    Can't wait for my little seedling to grow up and bloom one day! :)

    I like them all and I'd keep them all if they were mine; but, my favourite is #3. It's got character!

    I don't think I've ever seen such round niveum as the first two photos.
    I like them all too.

    Nice variation. Is the 2nd flower slightly cupped?

    I can't make up my mind. I'm a sucker for these things.
