    Default Alice Bell X Alma Gavaert Paph in Bloom

    A month ago I brought this paph home from the grocery. Diane and Julie identified it as a Alice Bell X Alma Gavaert. It has hundreds of little hairs and when I look at it I see a little face. My grandson said it looked like it came from outer space. Must be the green. I promised pictures when it bloomed, so here they are. I love it and am already looking for more paphs.
