    Default Paphiopedilum barbigerum

    This species paphiopedilum from China is one I got during the SWROGA show back in May. An acquaintance I met, friend of Gin's actually, and I purchased it together because it was such a beauty of a plant full of new growths. It was in a 4 inch pot and we could tell that it had bloomed last year. We walked over to a table with Geoffrey and Gin and he broke the plant in half. I put my half in a plastic shopping bag and brought it home. It had no signs of a spike at the time, but I guess it was ready! And just look at it now!!

    This is a beautiful bloom, very nice proportions and pretty color combo.
    (I also like the story on how you got it!)

    Thanks, Laurent. I really like it too. It was fun hanging out with Gin, Geoffrey, Sarah, and Maggie at the show. I will remember it for a long time.
