Default Paph. callosum var. sublaeve

It's not fully opened yet, but I couldn't contain myself. It's not particularly colourful (as I've seen they can be), but due to its size I love it! It's so darn small! Only 6 cm wide and high (less than 2 1/2").

I think it's smaller than normal (or what I've read on slipperorchids.info is the norm at least) because of the tiny fans. It's a stress blooming, but I think I'll let the flowers bloom until they wilt by themselves, since it has two bigger and already flowered fans, plus a fourth new one (beside the three in bud) that so far doesn't show any sign of blooming. I hope it's going to grow a normal sized leaf instead.

I'll update the thread when all three flowers are open.

That is very nice. I like the purplish shading on the dorsal and petals.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I'll report them to my little one, I bet it'll be delighted to hear them.

I know I wrote that I wouldn't update the thread until all three buds were completely opened, but as usual, I can't wait.

Here it is with two flowers opened:


The first flower completely open (it's a bit crowded behind it):


The second flower:


And a profile picture:
silken, The Orchid Boy and SJF like this.
