    Default Paph Julius (Paph lowii x Paph rothschildianum)

    This slipper is finally open. I actually knocked it off the bench today when watering. It fell on the side of the pot and the spike did not break. SO LUCKY! I have been watching this bud open slowly for what feels like forever! haha...
