Excuse me if I'm off topic, but one thing that surprised me about growing paphios is that they're very photogenic. It is not only the flowers, but the various stages of their growth. I find this spike so beautiful. It reminds me of a heliconia or a bird of paradise flower. Can you guess what it is? One clue: it's a primary hybrid...

I also enjoy developing spikes and buds. Full of life and joy although it sometimes turns out to be a painful and disappointing end.
All part of the fun, I guess.
Is this Robinianum?? One parent has to be either lowii or haynaldianum, right?

But after all, it is a learning experience.
Not Robinianum (Paphiopedilum lowii × Paphiopedilum parishii) but one parent is haynaldianum ;). Well, that the tag says, but first flowering plant. So we will see...

Thanks for your lines.
