    Default My first paphiopedilum!

    Well, I got this lovely little thing at an orchid show a month ago....


    and now it has a second bud on it! I am just so very excited. I think the slippers are my favorites now.







    I could not have done it without all the great tips and the orchid care section!

    Thank you, Bruce!!

    Haha, Monarda, you should get one! They are very diverse, so you might find one out there you like even better than mine! Mine is Paph Leeanum X Paph Liemianum. Good luck!

    That is a really nice one Jet. I really love the sweet color combination . It is a real special one and as it is your first Paph who knows, you might even become in love with paphs the most, just as I did!
