    Default Paphiopedilum wenshanense

    I got this plant some years ago. It came together with a shipment of Paph concolor from Thailand to our local nursery. There were various varieties of Paph concolor but this one stood out because of its size and and unusual beige colour. I selected it together with a few other concolor. It was later identified as Paph wenshanense by a friend. It is one and a half times larger than a normal concolor. It measures 2 1/4 inches across compared to my other concolors measuring 1 3/4 inches.

    I am attaching a photo showing the P wenshanense and P concolor side by side for comparison. Btw both are free flowering averaging 2-3 times a year.
