    I'm no pro, but that looks like a straightforward Paph. lowii, no var.

    What's the first photo? That's some healthy specimen!

    holey guacamole!!! That Paph insigne is a true specimen!!! How long did that take to get to that size??? Gorgeous lowii too, and I'm with Julie, that looks like a regular lowii but with nice clean colours.

    cheers

    That picture must of come from the same village where this festival was held.

    http://www.orchid.or.jp/orchid/peopl...insigshow.html

    Heres a bit about the festival:
    The goal of 1 thousand flowers was not reached, in the 1st paph. insigne show were counted almost 900 flowers in bloom. Next edition will be more succesful due to many people just lended 1 pot and others were not aware.

    did you see those potfull of insignes??? wow!!! and it's all the one close so can you imagine how many years it has been growing... that clone "Arenys" sounds like one to look out for... and the dorsal sepal on it is quite large and flat so I think that gets loads of points during judging. I just want to know if it's the water or the the vitamins that gets them growing so well...

    cheers
