Any hybrid is difficult to second guess - unless you can find out from the seller/grower it will always be just a guess. MY best guess is that it looks like a charlesworthii X villosum primary hybrid - ?

Are both plants from the same cross? If yes, you can see the variability.

I would second the caution of mayres answer and add some of my own.

The plant looks like it has those species in the heritage, and mayres would know better than me, but _ANY_ ID based on a look only should never be used to then put a label on the plant. Treat the tentative ID as information used to help you grow it. IMO, it remains a NOID.

Good enough! Im just having a hard time with one of them.. has not grown a new fan in almost 6 months, im getting worried. The old fan started looking a bit yellow and i would hate to loose it....i thought perhaps an id and some reasearch might do it.

My experience with Paphiopedilum is not extensive, but new fans usually follow the flowers. When the bloom is finished, that would be a good time to repot. Good luck!

I have about 200 paphs and have found that they can be repotted just about any time. In most circumstances they will appreciate an annual repotting. Some folks in my society have gone 3-4 years with theirs, but I've noted that at two years I always have a percentage of mine that are telling me that I should have repotted them earlier - decrease in size and substance instead of the reverse! I know how nervous it can be waiting for a new fan to come through - especially when you begin to see the old fan turning light green - yellow - brown and then.......poof! Be careful when repotting that you handle the roots as little as possible - they do seem to be more fragile than many other orchid types. Good luck!

This is what they look like now, i took it out of the pot abd saw a small root coming out, i hope that helps.
Im just worried, these are my only paphs since they dont really sell those in my country and i just love them.
Thoughts on how they look?

They look reasonably OK. Of course the bloomed out fans will over time yellow/brown and die off. What we all look for is a nice new one or better yet - 2-3-4 new ones after the old one finishes. A combination of overall health, culture and possibly most importantly species/hybrid cross involved seems to affect how much new growth you get each cycle. Good luck! I love em too!

Thank you! I have recently added those bits of eggshells since i heard sime calcium might help. Will see how it goes and make an update! Hopefully it will be a good one instead of total heartbreak.....
