    Default Paphiopedilum Olenus

    I absolutely love the colour on this... however, I am in two minds about getting rid of it as this is now the second year in a row that it has flowered with a wonky pouch! And I swear it isn't my cultivation technique hahahah...

    Paph Olenus is a cross between Paph bellatulum and Paph ciliolare.




    cheers

    The pouch problem is the standard feature of this cross. As a guess, one in a hundred flower properly, ie no deformitiy.

    That's such a beautiful colour, Tim. It looks like it's puckered up for a kiss! have you tried kissing it? That might puff it out.
