    Default Paph. 'Chilton' x Paph 'Mt. St Helens'

    Paph. Orchilla 'Chilton' FCC/RHS x Paph. Washington Creek 'Mt.St.Helens'


    Hello everyone, I am new at growing paphs, and this is a new acquisition. I picked this one because I really like the color of the bloom. In my opinion, the grower should have spiked the bloom but it is to late to do so now. What really appealed to me was that it has four growths that may bloom this next year.

    For those experiences with paphs, please give me comments on if this is a good demonstration of the desirable traits of paphs. Enjoy!

    @tucker85, I liked the way the two side petals are trimmed in mustard yellow, but the top petal is trimmed in white. I thought this quite unusual.
