    Love this Paph Leeanum. My sis-in-law in Sydney, Australia, was given this huge pot of Leeanum and it must have had more than 10 spikes sprouting out of the pot- and she is not even an orchid grower! This is a good candidate for a specimen plant.

    Nice "find", Cathy! I love P. Leeanum! I think the spicerianum adds elegance to the insigne. Alas, I have not added one to my collection yet, but I do have a spicerianum that is rapidly becoming a specimen plant. You know my bias, I'm sure - unless you're dividing your plants to give/trade them to deserving friends, grow them as big as you can!

    On another note - I think you ARE rapidly becoming very well-versed in paphs - yours certainly look great. If you have time, can you pm me the name of your slipper nursery? We're in Sarasota today and staying in Tampa tonight, but I know you said you're traveling at the end of the month

    I agree with Roy, leave it undivided and it has great potential for a specimen size plant.
