    Default Paph. venustum

    This one used to be found in India and Burma, but wild populations may be extinct. This is the regular form, as opposed to the alba or white form that Forrest posted not long ago.

    Where *did* that X-rated squirrel go off to?

    I know Bruce still has a pic of it in his Casmira house, but I thought there was one here!

    Unc, I grow this one right up next to the cool cell, in what's best described as bright shade.

    very nice! the regular-colored form (or 3 dozen forms if you believe the "splitters" hawking every new shade as a new variety) is rather uncommon these days.

    I'm concerned about the squirrel. I saw that pic Bruce posted a little while ago, and it was very cute, but x-rated? Not sure I'd call it that. Are you sure its in casmira? I must have missed it. Are you :lemmetell something again, Lja? You do have a creative imagination you know....
