    Default Paphiopedilum Vinicolor

    This is one of only three complex hybrid orchids that I have. It was a gift from a very dear friend and it will stay in my collection for ever!

    It though need to be replanted and given a little more care as the flower is not as good in shape and size as it has been.

    Gosh, I love that color! A vinicolor paph is definitely on my wish list! Personally, I don't see anything wrong with the shape of the flower. I think it's a beauty! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks everyone!

    The size and shape of this flowering is not up to the standard this plant can produce. For a reference I found an old picture though taken in a bad strong light with my cellphone.
