    Cute little freebie I got a couple years ago. First time blooming for me. Bonus is there are 2 more buds coming.

    Susan, I believe that it might be a barbigerum hybrid, but I don’t think it’s the species.

    Ray, I beg to differ. The plant was donated to my local orchid society by an extremely well know Paph. breeder/grower with an impeccable reputation when he came to speak at a society meeting. The plant was then given out as a society holiday gift plant. Here is an updated photo. The first was taken shortly after opening and the flower had not developed its full character yet.
