    Great slipper orchid. Don't you love the patterning in these paphs leaves? Pretty in bloom or out of bloom.

    cheers,

    Lovely! I agree with Bruce - the leaves alone make this a beautiful plant, but the flower really puts it over the top.

    I love the alba Maudiaes and this is a superb one. There's a fascinating history behind the breeding and hybridizing of these orchids - they started out as Paph.callosum x Paph. lawrenceanum over a hundred years ago and have gone in and out of fashion several times since then. The first ones were much smaller than the most recent, and a lot of other species have been worked in to improve the size/shape of the dorsal sepal, as well as the angle and size of the side petals. It would be fun, if it's not impossible (and it might be) to find out the parents and trace the line back a bit. Yours has a nice straight and flat dorsal tip (many show a twist there). As far as I've researched and been told, you've got a pretty classic alba and there have been a few highly awarded cultivars - like Maudiae 'Magnificum' and Clair de Lune 'Edgard van Belle'. You might be interested in taking a look at them - that is, if you've caught the paph. bug. Another ideal is the tall, very straight stem, which is easily achieved by properly staking the stem early on and continuing to move the clips up as the stem stretches out. I've found out the hard way that if you re-orient them during stem growth, they'll twist and turn, which takes away from the stateliness of the bloom - so the lesson is, once you decide which way to face them, don't move the direction.

    Congrats - I love these blooms - and I'm jealous you have such a pretty one.

    You're very welcome, Suresh - I was afraid after I posted it that you probably already knew most, if not, all that I put in that post. And you probably do, but are very polite.) There are a lot of members on this forum who know far more about paphs than I do, but I've become really addicted to the Maudiae types, especially those that have a deep burgundy color and some fairrieanum in their parentage.
