Whenever one of my Parvisepalum Paphiopedilum species flowers, I feel like I should hold a press conference because it could be years before it flowers again. Hopefully this species will be a more reliable bloomer than related species like P. micranthum and P. emersonii (which for me have an average flowering rate of once per decade). In my opinion, this is one of the truly beautiful members of this genus and it grows quite easily under my conditions.
The flowers are 7-10 cm in diameter
The foliage of this species is exceptional. The sharp contrast of the mottling pattern a lustrous leaf surface stand out among other Parvisepalum Paphs in my small collection.
