This species is native to a small area of peninsular Thailand. This is a close relative of Paphiopedilum insigne. This species has leaves that are about 1/2 as wide as in insigne but are very thickly textured. Leaf-spans are 10″ – 12″. Inflorescences are single flowered and 8″ – 12″ tall. Individual flowers are 3″ – 4″ wide. The petals cup forward slightly. The dorsal sepal is white, basally veined green, and marked with large black spots centrally. The pouch is bright yellow to dull yellow. This species prefers higher light than most other Paphiopedilum.
PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a Seedling Population (not a Mericlone which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
