Paphiopedilum gratrixianum (Masters) Rolfe
P. villosum var. gratrixianum
Found in Laos and Vietnam, Paph gratrixianum is closely aligned with Paph. insigne, Paph villosum and Paph exul. This plant is easy to grow and flower and will quickly develop into specimen plants. The bold spotting of the sepals is in the background of many of our modern day spotted hybrids. Found in the early 1900's and published in 1905, the flowers are typically 7-8 cm. wide and carried on tall stems, up to 25 cm. tall.
Plant is easy to grow in culture and likes a standard Paph mix.
