    Default NoID - but cute

    Bought this as an untagged paph just to see what I would get. Hey, for $4.25 what did I have to lose?? The leaves are plain, it is obviously a sequential bloomer, quite small. The bloom is about 3" or a little more from the top of the dorsal to the tips of the petals. I'm guessing glauc or moquettianum in the mix...???

    The first picture is clearer, the second captures the coloration much better.

    a second vote for Honey. the dark distal petals, the yellow background color and the soft pastel yellow/orange of the pouch. very cute.
