Paph kolopakingii var. topperi
I bought at AOS show this past weekend from Orchid Inn. It's a very big plant and flowers are scented. I am glad that I got a big plant - it has single growth but a new one is just emerging. I also bought a few paph seedlings that will take years to flower. But I know years will pass quickly so I am looking to flower these.

how big does this get?

I also bought a Paph adductum x gigantifolum. I would like a Paph gigantifolum but I cannot find one available.

You crack me up! This is the largest Paph! And the adductum cross will be a decent size. I don't think you find a "legal" gigantifolum in the US just yet. I could be wrong, need to check SlipperTalk.

gigantifolums have been legal in US for a long time. I have some fairly decent sized plants of them growing and have had them for probably 4 or 5 yrs.
