(Paphiopedilum malipoense 'Chunky' x Paphiopedilum delenatii fma vinicolor 'Pinky')
in Paphiopedilum > Paphiopedilum Select > Paphiopedilum Select - Novelty

We remade Lynleigh, not something we usually do,  but this time with delenatii fma vinicolor.  We are seeing more pink in the flowers and the foliage is very dark, especially on the underside of the leaves.

  • About Lehua Orchids

    Lehua Orchids is located on the Island of Hawaii (the Big island, also known as the Orchid Isle). We are on the slopes of Mauna Loa, half way between Hilo and Volcano in a community called Mountain View. In this location we enjoy the benefits of our almost daily trade winds, and nightly from the cooling effects of our “mauka” winds (winds coming down from the top of the mountain)

    In this location we are able to specialize in intermediate temperature orchids. Our daily highs in summer are about 85 degrees with a 20 degree drop at night. in winter our highs are around 75 and 60 at night. These conditions allow us to specialize in our favorite orchids, Paphiopedilums, Phragmipediums, Angraecums and Lycaste.
