Paphiopedilum haynaldianum

Paphiopedilum haynaldianum, blooming in the sun room.  I really like this particular clone for its bright colors and wider segments (versus the one I posted previously).  Of course, I like haynaldianum in a general sense for its amazing combination of glossy hot pink, line green and polka dots combined with those deep sweeping petals.  What's not to like? This species is found in nature in the Philippines and, if treated well, grows into huge clumps.
