Paphiopedilum (Anita Baby x philippinense) is a new multifloral hybrid with great potential. The philippinense we used (‘JEM’ AM/AOS) has proven to be a wonderful parent for every hybrid it has made. The Anita Baby we used was very dark, with wide segments. This cross should come out similar to a St. Swithin, but it should be much darker.
The plants are very vigorous. They like bright light and warm temperatures, with a well drained potting mix.
