    Default I got one! I GOT ONE!!!!

    Well, after looking at everyone's beautiful flowers, I finally got me something for show and tell...

    Paphiopedilum Lebaudyanum



    I got this plant in February this year as an unflowered multi-growth plant.
    I first noticed the sheath after seeing Gilda's picture of one with the frog, so maybe Gilda's sent me some good flowering luck

    oh this is a cross between two of my fave Paphs from the philippines, ie philippinense and haynaldianum.

    cheers

    Hi Tim,

    What a lovely bloom!!! A cross of my two favorite Paph species, philippinense and haynaldianum, the flower definitely is graceful. Simply beautiful! Great job!
    Cheers. Hoa.
