    Default Paphiopedilum sanderianum x sib. ('Wonderland' x 'Twister')

    Hello guys,
    I have finally bloomed my Paph. sanderianum!!! I got it -- three years ago at the Vancouver Orchid show. This is a single growth plant I got it as a NBS plant. This is the first time it has flowered and I can't wait to see it in another week or so.

    Hey,
    The petals on the open flower are 25 inches or 63.5cm. I am not sure if they will get longer as the flower matures.
