Paphiopedilum species arrow curtisii 4N

curtisii 4N


POL1030-NBS

Price: $22.00



P. curtisii, also known as P. superbiens var. curtisii grows on the island of Sumatra. Its most distinctive feature is its dark maroon colored pouch. The plants we're offering are likely 4N (tetraploid) as seeds/protocorms were treated to induce conversion. Their slow growth would support their tetraploid status. These are unbloomed seedlings, and we're offering them at a very affordable price. If you're looking to round out your collection, here is an excellent opportunity to own a member of this uncommon species.
