The gold of Kinabalu (Paphiopedilum rothschildianum)

It's not for nothing that this beautiful orchid is called "the gold of Kinabalu".
Kinabalu is a national park in Malaysia and the only place where this orchid occurs.
The Paphiopedilum rothschildianum is the most expensive orchid in the world.
You easily pay $ 5000 for it!

Why is this orchid so special?
It is a very rare and endangered orchid that only occurs in Kinabalu Park.
It also takes no less than fifteen years for the plant to grow before it will flower for the first time. In addition, it is just a picture to see!
