    Default Paphiopedilum hennisianum

    I'm starting to wonder if my plants bloom only every two years...

    This is a native Philippine slipper orchid with mottled leaves. If I can grow it, I guess it is a fairly easy species to grow.

    Twins! Very well grown, Tim. I think there are some orchids that only bloom every few years. I have a phrag that is that way. Congrats on the beautiful, perfect pair of slippers!

    Cheers,
