Paphiopedilum sukhakulii

Paphiopedilum sukhakulii is a species from Thailand.  It is a small plant but has large and dramatic flowers. My plant has always had two flowers per stem, rather than just one, but this time it bloomed with only one much larger flower, 13 cm across.  Not only are the flowers beautiful, however, but the plant is too, with beautifully patterned fans of leaves as can be seen from one of the photos.


  1. Beautiful orchid and photos! The 2nd shot looks like some kind of alien creature coming in for a landing =)

    1. Thanks, Fizzie. I'd grow more Paphs if I had the space.
