    Default Paphio concolor

    Would like to show you P.concolor variety striatum section of Brachypetalum. The mottled leaf always different from the location of origin of this plants. Some doesnt have mottled leaf and some looks very oily looking leaf. Very odd.

    Nice collection you have there! How do you go about getting plants from different locations and know those locations?

    Concolor is a very widespread species (Myanmar to China) and occurs at multiple elevations. The leaf mottling is also very variable, but I do not think that a specific leaf mottling pattern is specific to the place of origin. With paphs, plants from the same colony and even seedlings from the same pod can have variable patterning (some brightly patterned, some very light, almost plain green). I have seen a few in-situ photos of purpuratum and appletonianum showing this.

    Concur with Li , Leaf markings (mottling)are very variable even in the same colony. I have seen Paph niveum in situ in 3 different locations in Kedah and in all cases there have been variations in leaf mottling even within the same colonies and and it would be impossible tell from which location the plants originate, Indeed it would even be impossible to tell from leaf mottling whether plants came from Kedah or South Thailand. 2 years ago I saw a shipment of niveum that were purportedly collected from Langkawi Island and the variations in leaf mottling was mind boggling. I managed to obtain one that had dark green leaf with just a barely discernible trace of mottling (hoping that it would turn out to be a paph other than niveum ). When it bloomed a few months later it turned out to be just another average niveum.
    I have no experience of seeing concolor in situ so can't comment on them, but I do have a few varieties of concolor including the var 'longipetalum' and their mottlings are variable too - the leaf shape of the var 'longipetalum' however are slimmer than the 'normal' concolor.
