    Lady Slipper Orchid winner xvart $12

    Up for auction is this Paph orchid. It is Paphiopedilum(P. tonsum 'Olive X P. praestans 'Ardmore).



    I will pay for shipping, USA only. Plant/plants shipped unpotted. Starting bid is $5.oo.

    If bids go $20 or over I'll throw in a mystery Paph for the winner. If bids go $30 or over I'll throw in two different mystery Paphs for the winner.

    Captain, is this a hardy lady slipper? I want it either way, but I know some are hardy - this would be a great bog addtion if it's one of those.

    I don't believe it is hardy.

    No paphs are not hardy and even though it is classified as a terrestrial it does not grow in dirt. It still takes a bark mix, but likes it wetter than an epiphyte orchid. Cypropediums are hardy

    This may have been the golden auction. It arrived today in a huge box with an incredible packaging job (just look at the intact flowers!). Captain Hamata even threw in a couple bonuses and a very nice note. Thanks a ton!
