Paphiopedilum Philippinense is in bloom

Philippinense.JPGI purchased this Paphiopedilum Philippinense from Paph Paradise at the Sacramento Orchid Society Show and Exposition that was held on April 8th and 9th.  When I purchased it, one could barely see a spike coming, but now it is well developed, and has three flowers, and at least two more in bud.  This is a picture of the first fully opened flower, showing the long tails on the petals.
