    I've decided to add this to the auction. It's one of the great small mottled leaf Paph species. You can find it at Jay Pfahl's http://orchidspecies.com by going down the page and clicking on the "P-Pe" genera button and then scrolling down to the species. This one looks more like the "another clone" photo, except it has even fewer spots. It's a crystalline white with few spots; most of them being inside the pouch. And the white is so pure that a sheet of plain paper looks off-white when next to the flower.

    The plant has two previously bloomed fans, plus a nearly blooming sized fan and a new growth recently started. If you've been following any of the recent Paph discussions in TF's orchid forum, this is one of those species that prefers lower light, warmer temperatures and a bit of limestone in the mix. One of the leaves has a bit of a sunburn (pay attention to that low-light recommendation) but it's otherwise in good shape. Let the bidding begin at $8 and I'll pay for priority mail shipping if it gets to $16.

    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.
