These are the tropical lady slippers, from Asia and South America respectively. He has done the exhibit for the Jacksonville Society at our show for several years, and has beautiful plants. This year he earned the show trophy for the exhibit, and an Award of Merit (AM/AOS)for a paph. He has earned a good number of awards for quality and culture of his plants, including two First Class Certificates (FCC/AOS)at our show last year, of which only a few are given each year.
