    Paphiopedilum Julius was the first orchid that stopped me in my tracks at the first orchid show I attended. The plant at the show had about 5 spikes with 4-6 flowers per spike, and I knew then and there I had to have one.

    I've killed at least 2 in the past. This one here is a first bloom seedling and I was quite pleased to have bloomed it, only 1 bloom but hopefully I can keep it alive long enough to have a multiple bloom spike. I don't know if the parentage is awarded or not. I don't grow it well, as I don't have a warm greenhouse. I grow it on a windowsill.
