Paphiopedilum malipoense x Paphiopedilum armeniacum

A gift from Happypaphy7 at Slippertalk! And much appreciated.

This one has taught me quite a bit about patience and luck and patience. This flower spike initiated back at the end of 2017 or very early 2018, I believe. As many of you know, Paph. malipoense is notorious for taking an exceptionally long time to go from early spike to full bloom, so this isn't all that surprising for one of its hybrids.

The plant itself is quite small, so when it spiked, I expected the spike would blast. However, it continued to grow and develop buds for awhile. Then by this past summer, the spike stalled. The buds remained, but it never got any taller than 6 inches (15 cm) and buds never changed in size or color. Eventually at the very end of this past December, I realized the spike had started growing again, and this is the result.

The flowers on this bifloral spike are small, though it wouldn't surprise me if it produces larger flowers next time it blooms. Both flowers opened within days of each other. The shape is decent enough, the color seems nice if it holds, and there's a nice bit of spotting, which I appreciate. There is no fragrance that I have dectected.

Its sibling is also in spike, but its spike development time has been much more rapid. Based on the largest bud, I think the flowers will be larger.

I wouldn't be upset with that result. I find that the plant seems to be a slow grower, too.

The bud on the sibling plant is getting big, I'll post photos of that once it's open. It'll be interesting to see the variation between the two seedlings.
