    Default Paph. Meon x Philippinense

    This was a get-well-soon gift from a friend at the NH Orchid Show last week, and I love it! Meon is a Maudiae hybrid (31% lawrenceanum, 25% sukhakulii, 25% superbiens var. curtisii and 19% callosum.)

    Rather than the purples and greens of your typical maudiae, this has more mahogany and olive coloration - very pretty! You can see a second bud on the flower's immediate right.

    The pic's not the greatest, but all I had time for at the moment.
