Vinicolor/coloratum type paphiopedlium.   We call this kind of breeding 'maudiae type', after the first cross made very many years ago.  Unlike alba forms (see Hsinying Magikun), the coloration of these can be widely variable.  All will have some degree of burgundy spotting/veining and some might be solid burgundy.   Since they are grown from seed, it is impossible to predict the final color of the flower until bloom, although if you have the opportunity to see plants in person look for the amount of burgundy color in the leaves of the plant, especially at the base - more color = darker flowers.  These plants are very easy to grow and if they are happy will bloom at least twice a year, I often get three blooms per year.  Flowers can last 3-4 months.  But, even if they aren't in flower they will have very pretty leaves.
 
These are a great value, I have sold plants for almost 25 years and I don't recall ever being able to offer plants of this quality for this price.  I suggest ordering several, you will not be disappointed.   And since they are grown from seed, even plants from the same cross will be unique.  These are large, multiple growth plants freshly potted up to 3.5" pots (or larger).  Normally I would charge twice as much for these, or divide them into multiple plants.
 
All plants of this type are grown the same regardless of their coloration.  Maudiae type paphiopedilums are warm growers (house temperatures) and want bright, diffuse light - east or shaded west window, sometimes a bright north window is sufficient.  Unlike many other orchids, these should never dry out completely, but don't keep them soggy.  Not recommended for terrariums.
