Paphiopedilum Magic Lantern is a primary hybrid between Paphiopedilum (delenatii x micranthum). It is truly a hybrid that gets the best of both parents. Expect large pink flowers with attractive markings on tall stems in the spring and summer months. They are vigorous growers and can form beautiful specimen plants.
This particular cross was made with Paph delenatii var. dunkel, which should produce more intense color than the typical Magic Lantern. We grow these alongside our mottled leaf Paphiopedilum hybrids. They are more tolerant of drying out than many other hybrids due to the influence of Paph micranthum. Check out our care page for specific growing information.
