Paphiopedilum tonsum var. curtisifolium
Paph. tonsum is a lovely little lady with large blooms. Their shape is similar to Paph. gratrixianum but with a much more slender "build." The curtisifolium variety is not a scientifically recognized variation but we have chosen to keep it as it identifies these particular plants as more the lighter green color form for this species. The flowers with be mostly light green and light brown with yellow highlights and dark freckling on the petals. The leaves are nicely mottled, making for a lovely plant both in and out of bloom! Available as blooming size plants in 2.25'' pots.
