Paphiopedilum rothschildianum arrow rothschildianum 'Arthit' x 'Butterfly'

rothschildianum 'Arthit' x 'Butterfly'


Price: $60.00

P. rothschildianum is called the King of Orchids for good reason. Few, if any, other orchid flowers match its striking form and beauty, so it is no surprise that this species has received more FCC awards than any other species.


Another exciting new roth cross - 'Arthit' was one of the progeny of the 'Val' FCC/AOS x 'Mont Millais' FCC/AOS, and 'Butterfly' has great form and color. Both parents have bloomed out over 30 cm NS, and one of them had six flowers on its first bloom; the other had (only) five!


The 'Arthit' cultivar is one of the progeny of the 'Val' FCC/AOS x 'Mont Millais' FCC/AOS cross, a breeding effort that has produced numerous top Gold Medal and FCC awarded plants in both Japan and the US.


To even have a chance of getting into the top award range in rothschildianums these days, you really need to start with excellent parents. The parents used here will certainly have some prize-quality progeny. So if you're looking for a rothschildianum with excellent potential at a good price, this plant is a great choice.


These plants have leafspans exceeding 30 cm, and should reach blooming size in 12 - 18 months.
