Paphiopedilum Memoria Larry Heuer

Paphiopedilum malipoense x emersonii

I purchased this from Piping Rock many years ago. It's a slow grower for sure, but at least it bloomed again! The growth and bloom this time are a tad smaller than the original growth had, so I'm thinking it's getting a bit too much light and working to get it into shadier conditions. The flowers approach a 5.5 in (14 cm) in natural spread and the spike is a tad on the weak side so it does require staking. The flowers are faintly scented with the typical dry floral scent with a lightly musky presence that I tend to associate with P. malipoense, so I'm not sure P. emersonii influences the fragrance that much.

I like clones with bit more tesselation in the petals and I'd love if there were more countrast between lip and petal color. However, I still think this is a nice flower. There are cute little speckles at the base of the petals and of course the pouch has that wonderful speckling that shows through the flower tissue. And one thing is for sure, the flower makes it abundantly clear that this is the real deal and not one of those Shun-fa Golden being passed off as Memoria Larry Heuer.

What a cutie! Another well grown Paph from Mr Happy Rotter

I have yet to be seduced by a Paph, but if my experience holds true, that genus will also beguile me eventually.

I also questioned my desire to add some as past experience was embarrassing. I became a better waterer and got much better results.
