Another old complex paph. Cost me a bomb twenty five years ago... But I like it, and my old mum used to say money is made round so that it goes round. That was in the days when coins were worth something , and notes rather rare... a long time ago . An American hybrid I believ, although I have never looked it up.
25yrs? Eloquent testimony to the longevity of orchid plants.
I wonder if the complex paphs are perhaps beginning to experience a resurgence of popularity. I saw a fair number of them at the last show I attended. If you haven't already checked out my pic from the Grand Rapids show, Geoff, you might like to do so. I included a few shots of ones I thought particularly nice.

Beautiful complex paph orchid, Geoff.
What does it mean by complex Paph?
Hope this helps ; I'm afraid that after many years in the orchid world we come to speak our own jargon and don't realise others do not understand it.
I had forgotten that mericloing Paphs was not possible, I assumed since I got it this cheap it must be because of mericloning.
