I purchased this Paphiopedilum Thunder Sea x Winston Churchill from Paph Paradise at the Gold Country Orchids open house on Saturday, November 19th. I attended a lecture on “Getting the Most out of your Paphiopedilums”, after which Paph Paradise was offering good prices on their orchids. I have always wanted a Paph with Winston Churchill in the cross as the brown and white mixed colors always looked good to me. This one “nearly” in bloom, and should be open in a week or so.
It has a new growth, and should bloom again next year. A healthy plant.
