Paph. Sandy's Wild Turkey

(Paph. victoria-reginae x lowii)

Foliage is green, plant size is large, flower spike is also tall like Paph. lowii.  But inherited some good characteristics from Paph. victoria-reginae, namely, a pink, fuller pouch, fuller and greener dorsal, more spottings toward the base of the petals, and more importantly the sequential-blooming characteristic of Paph. victoria-reginae.  So far, we have seen up to 3 open blooms at the same time with the flower spike ultimately producing up to 8 blooms on 2nd year bloomers. 
Shade loving and very easy to grow and bloom.  A well worth addition to your collection.
