Paphiopedilum sukhakulii

Paphiopedilum sukhakulii is a species from Thailand.  It is a smaller plant but has large and dramatic flowers.  Rather unusual for this species, my plant always has two flowers per stem, rather than just one.  Not only are the flowers beautiful, however, but the plant is too, with beautifully patterned fans of leaves.  I photographed this on white for a change, though only one flower was open at the time.


  1. A wonderful Paphio. Congratulations for the beautiful flowering and wonderful photographs. Best regards Ron

    1. Thanks, Angel. It's one of my favorite Paphs.
