    Default Paph. Prime Child x Paph. lowii 'Dragon Flight' AM/AOS

    This paphiopedilum is sure strutting his stuff. Look at those outstretched petals. I include two shots of this paph to give some perspective on the bloom. I can see why the lowii parent was called 'Dragon Flight'! Enjoy.

    Very nice -- I don't know about "dragon flight" -- but there is definitely some FLIGHT involved. It looks like it is ready to take off.

    Oh, no. BD I am sooo sorry to see that bloom with those horrible straight petals. I know how much you love the long, drooping ones. You had best send that right off to me!

    Those are very pretty blooms, Bruce! Truly unique. What's the size of the flowers? LS of the plant? Is it an easy grower?
