Paph rothschildianum species orchid, large seedling, 12-inch leaf span
One of the kings of the orchid world. A multi-floral species. These can produce 4 or 5, 12 inch wide flowers on a 3 foot tall spike.
Native to Northern Borneo. Plants in the wild were found in only two places on the lower slopes of Mt. Kinabalu.
A must-have for any serious lover of paphs. Much awarded and much hybridized.
The judges had this to say about one of the award winners: "Four large, stately flowers ... sepals chartreuse, clearly defined stripes dark chestnut brown; petals chartreuse, proximal one-third spotted and barred dark chestnut brown, distal two-thirds coalesced to stripes; pouch dark chestnut brown anteriorly and along sides; substance good; texture satiny." The natural spread was 30 cm.
This came to us in a large wholesale order from a reputable breeder. Sorry, we don't know the exact parents.
These have a single growth with a 12- 14 inch leaf span in a 4 inch pot. Probably two years from first flowering, but well worth the wait. You get the plant pictured.
Could sell for $200+ if in flower at an orchid show.
