    Default Paphiopedilum Armeni White

    I bought this paph a few years ago and it didn't bloom last season. However, my frustrations were cured with two spikes this spring! It's interesting how the blossoms go from a more creamy/yellow color from the armeniacum parent to a true white a fews days after opening. I also love the speckled pattern on the inside of the pouch.

    Quite lovely. The speckling in the pouch is really cool, especially when you can't see it through the outside.

    I agree - that's so pretty, and the speckles hidden away make it a little treasure!

    Those are 2 beautiful blooms on a very well grown plant. The best part is that once those fade you should have a second set coming along. Congrats on the blooms !!!
