Paphipedilum maudiae 'Alba'. May 18-2018

Slowly the Paphiopedilum orchid flower bud is starting to open. What a peculiar orchid indeed, complete with a pouch lip, hairs, stripes and warts. Apparently it was an old hybrid and the proper name is Paphiopedilum maudiae “Alba’, though some call it P. maudiae green.
