    Default Paph. Deception II

    I recently acquired this little guy and have been pleased with the bloom.

    It is a Paph. Deception II (Paph. delenatii 'Chine White' x Paph. niveum 'Lula Snowplow')

    I love the green staminode and the light purple speckling, one of my new favorites!

    You're Welcome! I thought the back was important to show because of the flowers lineage.
