Another cheap acquisition of mine (about less than 2 US$). When I bought this one it was bare root and it has one bud. The bud opened few days ago, and had been trying to get a good pic of it. This is the best I could manage with the webcam.
I know I should cut off the flower but I want to try to idenfy it first. I have look at several sites with pics of Paph but couldn't find one similar to this.
The flower is about 7 cm from tip to tip, pouch about 3.5 cm from rim to the bottom and about 2 cm wide. The pouch is lighter lavender in reality. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.
I would appreciate also if someone could give me direction to a website where I can do some research. Because this one, judging by the look of its leaves and its overall appearance appeared to have been collected from the wild rather than cultivated
"I'm Henryanum b#@$*!!" Sorry for the explicitive! What a deal! $2 and a specie! Congrats!
Thanks a lot guys. I did some reading and found out that this one is very much suitable for a newbie like me . I will certainly going to enjoy this one for a few more days or until the bloom expire. It does have good roots, the hairiest roots I have ever seen.
Thanks for the URLs Jmoney, I've added them in my favs list.
