    Cool Paphiopedilum Spiderman 'RVO Bruce's Delight'

    This paph is the first paph we ever won a ribbon with at a show(long before it got the silly name Spiderman). It is probably one of my favorite slipper orchids (thus the RVO Bruce's Delight tag). I love how dark it is. Not all of the blooms are open, but here are a few shots.

    That is stunning, BD!!!!!!!No wonder it won a ribbon. Has it been submitted for award judging? That's a very fitting varietal name.

    Thank you, Yew Sung. There never seems to be an AOS show when this guy is in full bloom. I keep hoping that one day a show will be going on where I can submit it for AOS judging. It never fails to impress me with its blooms. I wish I was more skilled at photographing it. It is really a pretty orchid and the blooms are so dark and rich with color. I think to win an award it would need many more blooms than I usually get with it though.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Fantastic! The mahogany color on the pouch really makes it unique, IMO.

    I'm with Bill. Hint hint. Maybe you need to divide it to make it bloom better! That is one lovely plant. The blooms are to die for. Great growing.
