Paph. gratrixianum X barbigerum 'Mini'

This little slipper orchid was purchased from Zephyrus Orchids in Ontario, Canada several years ago and grows in a 7cm (under 3") clear, slotted pot in Paph. mix. It has quite a large colony of fans and typically blooms a couple times each year. It would be a fine choice for windowsill growers with limited space and good light. It doesn't like full sun (I moved this into sun for the photo) or wet feet. Each watering is with MSU mix fertilizer for pure water mixed to 125ppm Nitrogen.
