    Paph. lowii ("Princehouse" AM/AOS x "Pinkie") x sib

    Can't take credit for the bloom nor spike, but I'm in love. I purchased it from a well know Paph breeder, here in Florida. I think I'm in trouble.

    O.M.G!! That is absolutely beautiful. I wish I could find one of these over here in the U.K. It looks unreal. I suspect that there may well be trouble ahead!!

    Paph lowii is a favorite slipper of mine, Cathy. You can get hooked on slippers with this one.

    Can't restrain myself from saying "I told you so", Cathy! Believe me, you can take some credit for the lowii - it's absolutely possible to ruin a perfectly good paph acquisition, even if it's about to bloom and yours is just beautiful!

    I have to admit I may be at risk of feeding my slipper addiction myself, now that I know there' a slipper grower in FL....

    Maura, I wish you were closer to me. It would be fun to have someone that I can learn from. And yes, you told me so
    I have such an issue with carpal tunnel that sitting and typing volumes is miserable. I try to save it all for work. There are so many questions I would like to ask.
