Fred's Magnificence - this poor flower spike has a lot to live up to.

Throwing a spike. It always makes me want to hold my breath.

So primitive looking - lovely.

Description: I purchased this orchid from greenhouse clearance rack. The leaves are quite twisted and alien looking. I am not sure what portion of its looks arise from trauma and what portion to ascribe to genetics. In any case, it is a very interesting plant and it is now spiking so I am eagerly awaiting the flower. This plant has flowered 3 times more frequently than my other Paphiopedilums.
