    Default Paph. 'spicer arum x Olympic Halo'

    As I was saying.......

    God, I am so weak when I see an orchid I like and it is for sale.

    This paph was at one of my local, higher end garden centers and I just had to go back and buy it. It actually looks like there are three plants in the pot. With 2 flowers. It is vigorous at worst.

    Pictures taken after being freshly watered.

    I have a new saying "If you see an orchid in bloom and you find it very appealing, buy it now. You may never see one like it again."

    Beautiful Paphiopedilum. I love ones such as this which have yellowish/greenish flowers.

    After looking very closely at the label, there is the i, so my initial post saying it was Paph. 'spicer arum x Olympic Halo' was slightly off.
    The correct name off the tag is:
    Paph. 'spiceriarum x Olympic Halo'

    Hi Harvey,

    Congrats on the blooms. I notice that the flower is also wet but remember reading somewhere not to spray water on the flowers and could reduce their life. just a thought
