Paph
Paphiopedilum glaucophyllum
('Red Flower' X self)

    Paph. glaucophyllum is a distinctive Coclopetalum with its unique leaves that are light gray-green with the appearance of a powdery coating (glaucous). Pouch is red, dorsal sepal green with red-brown markings, petals off white with spots and hairs. This species can impart red coloration onto its progeny in hybridization. Can bloom for a long time on an inflorescence with many successive flowers chasing each other up the stem. Good plant for a light garden if you keep the ever-lengthening inflorescence under control. Similar to Paph. victoria-regina shown below, but the dorsal sepal is less striped and more bruched or overlaid. Java.

Paph
Paphiopedilum primulinum forma flavum
('C.H. #3' X 'C.H. #5')

    A super easy plant to grow and bloom! Does not need a ton of light and has a fairly compact and tight growth habit making it a good choice for light gardeners. Just keep the lengthening inflorescence under control and out of the light canopy. This is the originally described form of the species, and although albinistic, it is scientifically proper to call it simply Paph. primulinum. We choose to add the "forma flavum" to our catalog just to remove any doubts. Flowers arise successively on a spike- one opens, lasts a couple weeks, falls, is replaced by the next... sometimes ad nauseum. Can be in spike/bud/bloom almost continuously, especialy on multigrowth plants. Flowers are usually yellow and can have touches of white and green. Sumatra.

Paph
Paphiopedilum victoria-regina
    A successive-blooming species, also known as Paph. chamberlainianum, which has flowers that open, last a while then fall to be replaced as the next bud opens. Repeat, sometimes for a year or more per inflorescence on mature plants. Then the next growth matures and repeat some more. We call that successive blooming. As with the other Cochlopetalums, the pouch is pink, petals are creamy white spotted red-brown, and the dorsal sepal is green to cream and in this species striped dark brown. Great species for light gardens as long as you can keep the ever-lengthening inflorescence under control. Blooming size plants, some have spiked up. Sumatra.
