    Someone esle told me it might be a PAPHIOPEDILUM lawrencianum. I saw a picture of one and it looked very much like this one. Maybe they are all related!?!?

    I've got a few plants in pots...no orchids. All I have is an 8 x 16 foot concrete patio that never gets any sunshine unless it's reflected from the building behind me, so all I have is winter bulbs and a couple mini roses out there. I wish I had a large covered green house type patio. Maybe someday!

    There are similarities to Paph lawrenceanum but this is almost certainly a hybrid involving Paph callosum, Paph sukhakulii and probably others including Paph lawrenceanum. About all you can really be certain of is that it is a Maudiae-type Paph. There are hundreds of these hybrids that are impossible to identify more precisely if they come NOID, especially with the green and white alba flowers. Whatever it is, it is obviously very well grown.
