Paphiopedilum liemianum-select


Paphiopedilum liemianum –Select

This first bloom seedling has definite award potential. The color and form are very good and it is a very large first flower.

This plant is a in a 3.5″ pot and is currently in bloom, with a new growth.  The flower was 11.1 cm across, with petals that were 1.3 cm wide when I measured it, but it has dropped off since then. Fortunately this species keeps blooming on the same spike for many months. The flowers on the next growth should be even larger and more impressive!

Paphiopedilum liemianum is a sequential blooming species from the Indonesian islands. Plants in this group produce one flower at a time, but continue to bloom on the same spike for months. Mature plants can continue to flower for over a year.

This cross was made with our very best example of this species…better than our FCC! We expect some amazing results from this cross.

The habitat for this species is warm and humid. Jay’s site has more specific details. We grow these with our Maudiae Paphs with moderate light and warm temperatures.
