    Default Paph Small World x Ambersham

    Here is a complex hybrid Paph sometimes referred to as a "Bulldog".

    The breeding of these Slipper orchids has got to the point where they really look more like a very colourful dinner plate than the species Paph.

    Don't get me wrong, i love these as I love any other Paphs... but they are certainly quite removed from their ancestors..

    Thats a good honest flower Tim. Certainly worth keeping. It has the markings of Small World and an improved shape of Ambersham.
