    Cool Our Paph Julius

    This paph is in bloom today in the greenhouse. I love this time of the year because all of the slippers are starting to bloom.

    The parents are P. lowii x P. rothschildianum.
    Nice flower Bruce, a little shy in spike length and flower count, is it just this flowering ??

    This is the first of the blooms to open on the spike. There are two additional buds just above this one. (see the first photo). I will try to get a better photo to show its height when more buds are open. And it is a lowii x rothschildianum cross.
