Paphiopedilum christensonianum was originally considered to be a variety of Paphiopedilum gratrixianum. In the recent checklist of Paphiopedilum species, Harold Koopowitz separated them and gave Paph christensonianum status as its own species. Whatever the status, our observations have been that this species is a more compact grower. It forms large clumps very quickly and makes an impressive specimen.

The flowers of this species are wonderfully colored. They have combinations of yellow, orange, with pink and dark purple. They also have a nice glossy texture.

This species grows quickly and flowers easily, with no special requirements. It can be grown along side mottled leaf species and hybrids, or even complex hybrids. You can find growing tips for all your Paphs here.
