    Steve's plant is a primary hybrid cross between two species: Paph rothschildianum x Paph kolopakingii. Two of the largest and most impressive of the Coryopedilum Paphs. So it looks like a species, even though it's a hybrid.
    thanks julie. i did at least know what a primary hybrid is, though. (you weren't wrong to think i might not, though.. XD )


    anyway, its a very pretty plant. i like the paphs that stick their pouches out straight like that, it makes them even more unusual!

    I would say easier than a roth but i am not that experienced growing paphs(about 2 1/2 years) , it may just be a really good plant but it does grow a lot quicker than my pure roths.
