    My other Paphiopedilum phillipinensis is a far larger plant with petals that are not so curly. I wonder if this one is roebelinii. IMG_2904.JPG IMG_2865.JPG

    Thanks. Sadly, here in Puerto Rico there are very few Paphiopedilum growers. This means that, relatively few plants are exhibited in comparison with the huge numbers of Cattleya, Dendrobium and Phalaenopsis that fill the exhibits. So the opportunities for learning about these plants from observing plants "in the flesh" are not many.
