    Default Paphiopedilum Pinocchio

    I do recommend this plant for people new to paphs. Paph Pinocchio is glaucophyllum x primulinum. These are multifloral plants that bloom sequentially, meaning that they put one bloom out at a time (sometimes more). This means that the spike will stay in bloom for a long time, as each new bloom replaces the old one. I've read that mature plants can be permanently in bloom!

    I recently repotted it and a growth fell off, so I gave it away to someone as a their first paph!

    this is truly an amazing paph... i saw a paph. glaucophyllum before but turned it down as
    its way too expensive and way out of my budget (paphs can get really expensive around
    here ). But that doesn't mean I'm not going to get one in the future. For the meantime
    i'll just enjoy this in front of my computer monitor... thanks for sharing.

    A very colorful pouch on this one. Some Pinocchios I've seen have had much less intense pink. I probably don't need to say this, but I like it!

    Cheers,

    Very true, this really is a great Paph to have in a collection. I think you did a good job getting your photos....I have such a hard time taking a decent picture because of the soft colors.

    thank you!
    I had a very tough time photographing as well during its first blooming a while ago. Finally I think that I have learned how to hold a camera (nothing fancy, although one of these days I'll get a SLR) But this plant I had to pick photos from many shots

    Now I always I use natural lighting. Preferably morning/early afternoon light. And no flash! (my oldest photos might have had flash)
