    Default Paphiopedilum insigne

    As I'm not an expert with Paphiopedilum, I bought it in buds, to be sure to see at least one flowering ! My wife loves Paphio.

    Great form on this insigne, the colors are not as strong as the ones we see here in India but the dorsal tepal is so broad with such a nice form.

    Excellent photographs of this beautiful lady slipper orchid , Eric. You may have got it in bud, but I bet with your excellent care it will bloom again for you next season. Thanks for sharing the beautiful shot and especially for the close-up photo in post #2 - stunning!

    cheers,
    BD
