Paphiopedilum appletonianum
Many orchidists believe this species is synonymous to P. hainanense however, there are some distinct differences. Flower stems are usually taller and the flowers are considerably brighter overall with more defined colors of lavender/pink in the petal tips and green in the pouch and dorsal. These easy to grow compact plants have boldly colored leaves with obscure green mottling. Paphiopedilum appletonianum plants can be quickly grown into specimens, carrying multiple flower stems in as little as a 3” pot!

Paphiopedilum hainanense
This delightful miniature species is native to the island of Hainan off the coast of China. Flowers are apple green to chartreuse and are overlaid with darker green venation with lavender/pink on the petal tips. The green pouch is overlaid with greenish-brown giving a lovely finish to this eye-catching flower. These compact and easy to grow plants produce beautiful variegated green/silver leaves and can be established into multi-growth plants in a mere 2.5” pot!

Paphiopedilum haynaldianum album
This is a species that is seldom seen offered lately, especially in flask and at this low price! These are fairly compact in stature for a multi-floral species and are easy to grow as well as quick to bloom from flask. As an adult plant these will bloom twice a year.

Paphiopedilum haynaldianum
Undeniably, this is one of the most colorful of the multi-floral Paphiopedilum species. These plants will produce tall sprays of 6 to 9 very large colorful flowers. The commanding petals spread 6-7” across! They are colored predominately rose purple and yellow with large maroon spots nearing the center of the bloom. The upper portion of the dorsal sepal is white, and then turns to rose purple midway, then to yellow with faint but large maroon spotting centrally. Pouches can vary a bit in color from a subtle mahogany to an almost flaxen color.

Paphiopedilum leucochilum
Found on islands off Thailand, these low growing compact plants produce some stunning long lasting, extremely waxy flowers. The flower background is creamy white with an overlay of mahogany/red to near black in some cases. This overlay can be displayed in dashed patterns or in a near solid patch. The pouch is cream to pure white with no overlay. The plant leaves are heavily mottled dark green on the top and nearly solid purple underneath.

Paphiopedilum sanderianum ‘Jungle King’ x ‘Jungle Chief’
The ever elusive species from Borneo is once again available in flask! The extremely long twisted petals reach up to 30” in length and are the distinction of this rare species. Being that these plants are extremely sought after they are often sold for over $200.00 only one or two years from the flask! This is a cross between the two best sanderianums I have in my collection at this time. I will advise that these are very slow to mature and should be grown by the experienced grower. I have a limited number of flasks that I’ll be releasing.

Paphiopedilum spicerianum

Paphiopedilum stonei 'Fernwood' x self

In the instance of this plant, the dorsal sepal is almost completely clear white, very sizeable and appropriately rounded and upright. This plant is also uncommonly compact in growth with very wide, chunky leaves that resemble polyploidy.

Paphiopedilum venustum album
The marbled ‘brain’ look in the pouch is always a conversation piece with this species, especially in this albinistic form. Plants are compact in growth and have beautiful lightly tessellated leaves with a crystalline overlay. These typically bloom in less than 24 months from the flask!

Paphiopedilum venustum
This is a truly exotic Paphiopedilum species a rare find in flask these days! This busy flower is like something put together from out of this world! The much defined green and white striped dorsal sepal is set off by the exotic colored petals of ruby, green and white. These perfectly horizontal petals are unsystematically overlaid with large dark spots of various sizes and bordered in fine delicate hairs. The pouch is no doubt the most interesting part of the flower containing the nerve like netting pattern of olive green over the glossy mahogany background. Plants are compact in growth and have beautiful dark tessellated leaves with crystalline like overlay.

Phragmipedium Autumn Fire
(Eric Young ‘Rocket Fire’ x Barbara LeAnn ‘Pink Doll’)
EXCLUSIVE OFFERING: In my first offering of this hybrid I predicted well shaped flowers in an array of colors that were not yet seen in Phragmipediums. That was a bull’s-eye prediction and this beautiful hybrid needed to be remade just for that fact. These are large flowers of near perfect symmetry and wonderfully colored in hot reds, pinks, crimson and more. There have already been AOS awards granted to this hybrid from only handful of flasks I released in my earlier offering several years ago and I foresee more awards as more of these are to be shown in the future.

Here we see flowers approaching 16 cm across having near perfect horizontal petals and colored in appealing shades of pink. The species schlimii carries wonderful genetics to introduce attractive color and increase flower production as well as improve flower petal fullness. These plants will be very productive and definitely produce branching stems.
