Paphiopedilum (Temptation album x philippinense album) promises to be a beautiful green multifloral hybrid. This cross is 75% philippinense and 25% kolopakingii. We expect to see long, graceful petals on tall spikes with up to 7 flowers.
Green multifloral breeding is a relatively new but exciting area. Most of the Paphiiopedilum Temptation seedlings made with album parents bloomed out with some pigment in the flowers. The parent used here was a true green so we expect all greens from this cross. These are growing very quickly, showing great vigor. Just treat them like any other multifloral hybrid.
