Paphiopedilum species arrow charlesworthii

charlesworthii


POL1020-BS

Price: $35.00



P. charlesworthii is an easy to grow, dimunitive, and highly desirable Paph species. In nature it grows in Burma in rock crevices where it receives bright reflected light. Its flower is easily identifiable, and in addition to being in the background of many complex/standard hybrids, it is being used to breed some 'teacup' or miniature paphs given its small size.

 

The wide red dorsal on this cute species from Burma always turns eyes. P. charlesworthii has been used extensively in historic breeding to confer its dorsal size and color to its progeny. The species plant itself is very attractive, and very easy to grow.
