    Default Paphiopedilum Elfin Charm

    Paph Elfin Charm is a primary cross between Paph primulinum and Paph fairrieanum.

    And it looks like it has picked up various characteristics from each parent.

    Purchased in Oct 2007.. so I guess I didn't have to wait as long for this seedling to bloom... (although i do buy lots in Oct... hmmm.. note to self... "self-control")

    Paph Elfin Charm




    Cheers

    Nice. Both parents are readily visible. Is there any indication it will be sequential?

    Thanks for the lovely comments everyone... it doesn't look like it has taken up the sequential flowering of the primulinum... maybe future flowering when the plant is bigger and stronger (fingers crossed).

    cheers
