NOID paphiopedilum
Paph. NOID

This was basically my first orchid (though there were some around the house before that I didn't pay much attention to) that I must have gotten around four years ago this spring and the first orchid I ever re-bloomed.

It may be in bud now but I know I shouldn't get my hopes up - these things are extremely slow to come into flower though the flowers last for a very long time once they are flowering. I recall two years ago it was in bud in April (probably before that though I was away at school) and still in flower in early June, though getting towards the end of the flower's life.

Even without the flowers (which are a fairly typical shape for a Paph. in a fantastic dark purple) this would be worth growing for the leaves, something that puts this Phal. fairly high up on my list of favourite houseplants.
