    Default "Surprise" paph

    Maybe some of you remember that I posted a couple months ago about a 3 for 2 shopping trip I made (bought 2 paphs but one had a second plant in the pot, not blooming).

    Well, the mysterious one has bloomed now. Any guesses on names greatly appreciated. Pretty little flower, though I have to say I am a tad disappointed since I have a Pinocchio paph that already looks VERY similar to this one (leaves are different though). Would have preferred something more different to what I already have.

    Of course the pinocchio doesn't seem to want to bloom, so I guess I should take what I can get!

    Certainly has the form and coloration of Pinocchio...very nice and I'd keep it for now. And I'm sure you could find an orchid loving friend who would provide a plant home for this "outcast" LOL

    I am guessing it is probably paph Glaucophyllum or something very close too.

    I would agree, definitely in the glaucophyllum range. Though is it so hard to see all the fine little differences there! Anyway, pretty little flower and blooming, what more could a girl want?!
