The slipper orchids, with their distinctive modified lip or "pouch", have long been highly prized in horticulture. They are cultivated throughout the world, and countless hybrids have been produced from the 80 or so species.
Clockwise from top:
Paphiopedilum (sukhakulii x Virgo)(hybrid)
Paphiopedilum tonsum
Paphiopedilum venustum var.measuresianum
Paphiopedilum maudiae (hybrid)
Paphiopedilum gael (hybrid)

Pay attention. There will be a quiz after.

Are these free samples?
the Paphiopedilum gael (hybrid) is especially nice.
