    Default Paph. villosum

    I bought this in flower, February last year. It's put more into growth than flower since which I don't mind at all. This flower is reasonable but can be better I reckon.

    As villosums go, I'd say that's a pretty nice one.

    Thanks all. This came from a grower who paid very good money for a flask of seedlings out of an apparent "highly respected" Paph nursery. He would say which one. Was supposed to be the variety 'annamense', clearly not. He had been growing these plants for some time. He posted a pic in a group of a plant he had in flower purchased for one of these "can do no wrong" nurseries (& I do know which one this time). It was even the correct genus for what he thought he bought. How many more were sold like this I don't know. This is why "BUY LOCAL" & locally produced stuff.
