    I am very impressed with these Yew. One of the best Paphiopediliums I have seen. AL

    Glad you like it Maura. I have a few other 'dreadlocks' including that slow-growing (for me, at least) sanderianum. Just recently acquired a praestans and a supardii. I'm expecting my other Polyantha paphios,, kolopakingii, lowii to bloom soon.

    Such an elegant slipper orchid. I love it. I hope Tim (bench72) sees this thread. He would go mad over this beauty.

    cheers,

The true plant or type , perhaps P.phillinensis v.phillipinensis is the one from Sabah which you have. I prefer it because of the dramatic colour contrast. Regrettably a growth takes several years to mature here in our climate so I don't often see my plant in flower, which gives me 5 years to kill it between times when it might delight me ( joke ).
    Thanks a lot Geoff. Always appreciate the info from you - I now know more about the difference between var philippinensis and roebellini. Paph philippinense is very easy to grow here but I find sanderianum really difficult.

    Hi Yew,
    i may quote Jim Cootes here:

    Paphiopedilum roebbelenii is separable from Paph. philippinense from the much narrower leaves, the much hairier peduncle and the lack of green markings on the staminode.

    Superb !!! See the fruit of patience is much sweeter !! Though the previous experiences must have been very distressing. But now it is just spectacular !!!
