    Smile Paphiopedilum niveum

    I was expecting a different species but turned out to be niveum as well. The difference is that it has plain leaves and flower seem bigger than normal ones nad has more dark spots

    How odd.. The leaves look like it could be leucochilum or something else.. But the flower is definitely niveum.. Nice nevertheless..

    That is really a strange thing to see! I wonder why the leaves look like that? Maybe a hybrid of Paphiopedilum niveum and something else??

    I was just wondering why there are two sets of leaves? One plain and the other set mottled?

    I received them at night and there wasn't anymore pot. So I had to clump them together. In fact there were 2 pots of various paphios (same size diffrent foliage), one were given away to friend recently. I was thinking I would repot but as time goes by..you know the story...

    Not a hybrid... Possibly mutation!

    Abiom, what is your medium? 100% limestone rock?

    Very nice. Unusual foliage for a niveum.
