    Very , very nice ! and very well grown.
    But why Paphiopedilum? Is there anything new I've not heard about?

    What a cutey! I feel tempted to cultivate it, but I wonder if it would survive the searing heat of our summers.

    Very charming little orchid. They are not easy or cheap to find.

    I found a Mexipedium xerophyticum available from Orchideen-Wichmann in Germany, and gave myself an early Christmas present! Intensive internet research to follow!
