    Default Paph. wilhelminiae

    'Joe' x 'Ron'

    in the past year or two the market seems to have been flooded with this little species, which is a *good* thing if you ask me. very compact and easy-growing with good light and water, and some calcium. some of the older ones were notorious for "clumping", with a ton of small growths, and a resistance to mature (and bloom) the growths, but these newer sib/outcrosses seem to bloom much more freely.



    Within the quagmire that is the Paph. praestans complex exists a delightful little species that for registration purposes is currently known as Paph. wilhelminiae. This entity, which appears to go by Paph. gardineri in some circles, is distinctive for its tiny plant size in contrast to most of the other coryopedilums, with leafspans in the 10-15" range at maturity. The flowers are smaller as well, perhaps 5-6" across, but richly-colored in tones of dark mahogany set against a brilliant white background. This species is native to the mountains of New Guinea, and appreciates bright diffuse light and intermediate temperatures. Paph. wilhelminiae has been widely used in hybridization, and imparts rich color and smaller plant size to its offspring.

    I really like that one. I'm a bit of a species snob, and I absolutely love all the PNG species.
