    Default Paphiopedilum S. Gratrix

    = bellatulum x godefroyae, old but still good primary hybrid. This originated from Thailand. Big leafspan, first bloom. Not flat but I think its not bad.

    I don't grow too many paphs and still learning. I could have bought this as bellatulum. only difference I see is the godforaye influence is in the dorsal sepal?. Is there any clue I should look for in this hybrid to ID it?

    I thought it looked very much like a bellatulum as well. But also agree that it is a beauty!

    Bellatulum has a more pointed pouch and the petals usually hang downwards more, like dog ears. lol. And coarser spots. The leaves of bellatulum are also a bit wavy and have a distinctive pattern, although this can be variable according to origin of the plant or different crosses.
