What is Paphiopedilum 'spicerianum'
Paphiopedilum spicerianum is native to Burma and Assam and is the original species of spicerianum.It has a single unique flower about 7 cm in diameter. The pseudocoramus (column) in the center, which resembles a toad or bird's face, is conspicuous and delightful. The long greenish wavy things on either side of the face are petals. The center of the petals has a reddish-black streak. The green mouth-like thing is called a lip, which looks like an insect catcher's sack for insects but doesn't catch them. The white crown-like object that appears to rest on top of the head is the dorsal sepal (dorsal sepal), which has a reddish-purple streak.
Paphiopedilum (scientific name: Paphiopedilum Hybrids) is native to Southeast Asia and is a non-cold tolerant evergreen perennial plant belonging to the family Orchidaceae. It is a semi-growth orchid, and it has a feature that there is not one sepal piece compared to other orchids, and the lower one has a lip flap (bag shape). The lip is reminiscent of an insect bag. Usually, one flower blooms at the tip of the flower stem. The leaves are green, wide, rounded and shorter than flower stems.
