    Default Paph (Doll's Kobold x esquirolei)

    This plant was in bloom earlier this year. It had two blooms 3 1/2 inches wide and 2 3/4 inches tall. It is an "interesting" cross, I will reserve judgement on it until the second blooming.

    With an esquirolei cross the intent was probably "interesting" rather than classically beautiful, but it should be a vigorous plant that stays somewhat compact. It could put on quite a show as it matures.
