    Default Paph (Lyxel x sukhakulii) x Holdenii

    This is a maudiae-type Paphiopedilums. Surprisingly, the usually dominant species, sukhakulii, did not impart more of it's petal spottings. Probably not one of the better types with it's muted colours, but with dorsals like this, how can one part with it....



    cheers
