Paphiopedilum Berenice album (lowii album x philippinense album)

This is a beautiful multifloral hybrid. The flower colors can range from yellow/green and white through pastel yellows and reds. We haven’t seen this cross bloom yet.

Blooming size plants in 3.5″ pots. We are calling these blooming size since they are all pushing second or even third growths despite only having a leaf span of 8″. New growths mean multiflorals are ready to spike.

Description

Paphiopedilum Berenice album is (lowii album x philippinense album). The interesting thing about many ‘album’ multifloral hybrids is that they don’t necessarily produce 100% album flowers. For a Paphiopedilum to be considered album it must have no anthocyanin (red pigment). In this case you often get pastel shades instead of straight green and white. We call these albescent and some can be truly amazing.

Every cross is different. The amount of pigment depends on which genes are not functioning in the parents . Some crosses can produce pure green and white flowers. We haven’t seen any of these ones yet so it will be a surprise!

These are very easy to grow and flower thanks to hybrid vigor. They will do well when treated like any other multifloral Paphiopedilum. Just follow our advice here and you can grow like a pro!
