In bloom: A first bloom Paph seedling

Paph. hainanense x wolterianumThis is Paph. (hainanense x wolterianum), a cute little seedling blooming for the first time. The flower is small and delicate, about 2 or 2.5 inches across. It might get a tiny bit bigger on the next blooming although I suspect not much. But even though it is small, it is very cute in person. Last night it got a third place ribbon in the First Bloom Seedling class at the National Capitol Orchid Society (NCOS) meeting. It might have done better, but it flipped over in the car so it was a little chewed by the time we got there. oops. Still cute though!!
