Paph vietnamense grouping

One of the most exciting new species to be found recently from North Vietnam. The Bold pink and red colors promise new frontiers in Paph hybridizing. The leaves have a distinct feel to them from other Paphs. They are thick and succulent with a red underside. As with all new Paphs from Vietnam, these are not available commercially although some plants have found their way to Taiwan, Japan and Europe.

Culture of these plants in not known at this point.

Paph vietnamense 'Griffin'
