    If you want to always have something in flower, get a couple sequential flowering Paphs like this, a nice representative of the type.

    I think this is probably Paph Avalon Magic (Avalon Mist x liemianum). That cross would at least bear some resemblance to the name here, and be consistent with the appearance, as this clearly has only sequential flowering (Paphiopedilum section Cochlopetalum) ancestry. Species and hybrids of that type can be especially difficult to tell apart.

    There is no Paph Avalon, but all the Paphs with Avalon as part of the name come from Avalon Mist.

    There is no Paph Hermanum, and none of the Paphs with any variant of herman in the name could be a parent of this, but a faded label of liemianum might look like Hermanum.

    It's very nice. It looks very similar to my Paph Pinocchio that is a sequential bloomer as well. It can produce at least 5 or 6 flowers in a row with sometimes two flowers open at the same time.
