Paphiopedilum helenae

Paphiopedilum helenae

This is a fascinating miniature species found in a very remote/small region of N. Vietnam and possibly China. Very rare in the wild but incredibly robust in cultivation. Plants are found growing on vertical limestone cliffs, often times with no moss around the roots.
Species can grow much drier and brighter than most would think considering the size. The species flowers in October, typically after the heavy Monsoon season begins to subside. Plants are seedling of my 2 best helenae. (Baker’s little sunshine x Mad Hatter).

Paphiopedilum mastersianum

Paphiopedilum mastersianum

This is a very fascinating species and is restricted to a few very remote islands in Indonesia. The species has opened the door to many of the advanced complex hybrids you see today and is a very stunning species in its own right. Plants are relatively easy to grow given ample water and deep shade throughout most of the year. This species does best in high humidity and slightly warmer conditions but also will adapt and grow very well in intermediate conditions. Plants carry 1 long lasting flower that has a waxy texture and very beautiful apple green dorsal and cherry pouch and petals.

Paphiopedilum micranthum

Paphiopedilum micranthum

This is my favorite species of Paphiopedilum, the flowers are just surreal. This species is found from N.Vietnam-China and likely Myanmar growing on limestone cliffs or terraces. The species is very easy to cultivate but for some may be challenging to flower. The flowers can also be highly variable. The species does prefer to be grown in sub-tropical environments and often takes 4-6 weeks or more of Temperatures in the high 40’s with a dry rest to set flower buds. Plants bloom throughout the year but most commonly from late spring-Summer.

Paphiopedilum micranthum v. eburneum

This is the only recognized variety of the species micranthum. The flowers have a bright white pouch and light pink veined petals. Species is only known from one specific area of China and seems to be a bit easier to flower in intermediate conditions. Plants can be identified by having very tightly/thin veined foliage and ribbed leaf outline texture.

Paphiopedilum praestans

This is a very interesting species from Papua New Guinea that is a compact grower and has flowers that heavily resemble a smaller version of rothschildianum. Plants grow in nature very close to the equator and benefit from intermediate-warm conditions. The species has very thick fleshy leaves and can take bright light conditions.

Paphiopedilum rothschildianum – Rogue Orchids

Paphiopedilum rothschildianum – Rogue Orchids

The king of the Paphiopedilums! This species is one of the most highly coveted and impressive species ever discovered. Plants can take upwards of a decade to become flowering size from seedling but once blooming size are very easy to cultivate and will produce new growths rapidly and flower yearly on tall flower spikes with 4-6 flowers per stem. Blooming size plants benefit from a slight cooling off period around Jan-February to help initiate flower spikes from spring-Summer.
The flowers are often upwards of 12″ across/NS, heavily veined with deep burgundy stripes and have a red to deep almost purple pouch. Just incredible!!!
