Paphiopedilum primulinum x sanderianum


This was my first Paph, and one of my first orchids. I bought it with two plants in the pot, one of which was in bloom. Over the next 3 years it put out several new plants, but never bloomed. Finally in winter 2004 it started to bloom again, but only from one of the plants.
The original blooms.
The plant as of 3/04.
New flowers forming. I don't know if the black at the base of the plants is normal, all of my Paphs do that.
3/24/04 New bloom.
