    Default Paphiopedilum Memoria Heinie Christ (appletonianum x venustum)

    This little guy was thrown in as a "freebie" when I bought my last batch of slippers ten days or so ago. It's a primary cross, but wasn't registered until 1973, and, according to Orchidwiz - no awards. I don't know if that's because the bloom is so much smaller than the awarded forms of each parent - I do suspect this one is pretty small just because this is its first blooming. But it has nice proportions and VERY subtle coloring. Phillip and I had a tough time with the photos - just couldn't get all the color gradations right. The bloom is much prettier in real life.
