 Paphiopedilum (abbreviated Paph.) Rollie Wilson was registered in 2018 by J. Shumaker. This is a remake from Mr. Bear of Hung Sheng Orchid Farm using superior parents. Mr. Bear, past president of the Taiwan Paphiopedilum Society, is a fabulous breeder of quality Paphiopedilums.

 The pod parent is our (Item #NF2160) Paph. Hung Sheng Eagle (gigantifolium 'Hsinying' SM/TOGA x rothschildianum 'KHV' SM/TOGA). It produces graceful, distinctively striped and marked flowers, all accented with a richly colored pouch, on sturdy upright spikes; this is a handsome plant with broad glossy leaves. The pollen parent, Paph. rothschildianum 'Rex' FCC/AOS, is the best clone out of the Eric Young Foundation of England. Paph. rothschildianum was named after Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, who was a banker, politician, art collector, and horticulturalist—one of the wealthiest and most influential men in Victorian England. This species is called the “King of Paphs.” Its impressive, large, stately flowers always draw attention at orchid shows. This species can be slow to reach blooming size as seedlings, but once they reach maturity they flower reliably every year. As the plants get larger the flowers become even more impressive. Paph. rothschildianum ‘Rex’, is considered the best with a First Class Certificate (FCC) from the American Orchid Society (AOS). (“Rex” means king in Latin).

 Paphs detest soggy growing medium; pot in well-draining media. Grow them in bright light and warm temperature with high humidity and good air circulation. As with all Paphs, its roots are sensitive to salt buildup from excess fertilizer which causes leaf tips to turn brown. It is a good practice to flush the medium with fresh, clean water once a month and repot Paphs in fresh media every year. Can be grown on a bright windowsill or under lights. New technology advancements in LED lighting now make it possible to bloom and enjoy these plants in the home without a greenhouse.

 This remake has a double shot of Paph. rothschildianum. They are compact growing plants producing 4 – 5 shapely, richly colored, long-lasting flowers held in a stately fashion on one compact, very strong, erect inflorescence; sepals and petals cream yellow with deep mahogany stripes; pouch rich mauve; substance firm; texture satiny. The reduced size makes this remake amenable for growing under lights or on a windowsill, and more suitable to today's life style where space is a premium. We expect quality awards from this remake using superior parents. Highly recommended and a “must have” for all multi-floral Paph lovers.

PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a Seedling Population (not a Mericlone which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
