Paphiopedilum Orchid

Paphiopedilum Orchid
Paphiopedilum venustum var. album
(paf-ee-oh-PED-ih-lum) (ven-NUSS-tum)

The name of this Orchid is sure a mouthful. It was wonderfully exotic in appearance and lucky a picture of its tag was shot for later reference. The color scheme was different but certainly eye catching. This species is native to India and the Himalayan mountains. It is easy to cultivate at home but expensive to procure. The heavily mottled foliage is an added bonus.
