Paphiopedilum ang Thong x niveum-

$24.99

Availability: Out of stock

There is considerable debate about what Paph. ang thong actually is. Some people insist it is a species on its own, some say it is a variety of Paph. niveum, some say Paph. godefroyae, some say it is really a natural hybrid between the two. Regardless of the taxonomic confusion, oriental breeders have decided it is nice and are breeding with it anyway, so I'm leaving the tags the way they are. This hybrid is made with white parents, but most of the plants are blooming out with fine pink spots.
 
This ladyslipper hybrid is a robust grower and prolific bloomer, and doesn't take up a lot of space. It isn't unusual to get two or three flowering growths simultaneously in a 3.5" pot. The leaves also have an attractive color pattern and very interesting dark purple undersides.
 
Probably not well suited to terrarium growing. I grow most paphiopedilums in a 'medium sized' orchid mix, and top dress them with a teaspoon or so of crushed oyster shell once or twice a year. I prefer plastic pots for these, as they do not like to dry out completely. Let them get mostly dry, and then water thoroughly.
