    Default Paph insigne sanderianum

    This is a variegated plant. The is the 2nd time it blooms for me. The previous time there was no variegation in the flower, but this time the variegation can also be seen in the flower. The plant carries three flowers. Apart from the variegation there are noother spots in the flower as one would usually expect in insigne.
