Like every first weekend in February, there was a year market in the town next to ours. There they sell handcrafts, ecological food and vegetables, honey etc. It's a big market for fruit trees and any kind of plants. Between these plants also many orchids, but for the first time there were Paphiopedilums and of course I couldn't resist. I had planned on buying a cymbidium and a phal, but I ended buying also this Paph and a Cattleya (all hybrids, but I don't care) . I had never before seen a Paphio with such a big flower, and there are two of them. The cymbidium still has a complete spike to open and the cattleya has also a second sheath. I think all in all a good buy. Does anybody know if this Paphio has an ID?
I doubt there is much/any Maudiae in that one... but its BEAUTIFUL! I love the open form, and of course, the spots! The Cymbidium is great too! I wish I could grow them... every Cym I try seems to have a predetermined death wish....
The paphs pictured in your link are related to maudiae but yours is what the nursery calls an 'American Hybrid'. They must have diversified as they only did the American ones when I bought mine.
 except I see something different when I view the link on the PC as opposed to tapatalk as I viewed it first. Any the green/white ones they have in some pictures are the Maudiae types, the ones like yours are the American types. They don't give registered names for their orchids unfortunately [/edit]
