    Default Paph concolor - 2 flowers for comparison.

    Folks,

    Two different flowers of concolor for comparison.


    This is a very dark color form from NE Thailand. I decided to call her "Orangina" in view of the dark colour. It is very near to towards orange color.


    This is the usual concolor that I have seen.

    Both are beautiful, but I find the 'Orangina' to be quite appealing.

    Very good colour on the 'Origina', Would have been award quality if the shape were better.

    More flowers and better dorsal sepal would be ideal for judging. For the time being just have to be contented with what this plant can produce.
