    Default Paph. Transvaal 'Jewel Box'

    I have three , or maybe more, clones of this grex. One is ( Orchid Society of South Africa) awarded - "Ajas" AM/OSRSA ,another is maybe the best known clone in UK - "Marshallswick" , and this a third ; some years there is not much difference between them , but occasionaly this one is a bit brighter, stronger colours - hence the clonal name I gave it.
    Two flowers and a bud ; the old flower about 6 inches , this one currently about 5 inches.
    Won "Best Slipper" at Bournemouth Autumn Show on Saturday.

    I can easily see why this has gotten awards (Congratulations!). The varying patterns and wonderful colors make this bloom most attractive. AL
