    Yes, it was paph 455. I just spotted it today & price was good. He has one other of the same cross but its bud looked different. Both are dark buds though I thought this one was bigger & might even have 2 buds...this ones leaves are a bit more compact. I have been looking for a fairri...

    My First Paph Hsyining Web X Superbiens Opening

    Well its dorsal never did lift beyond about 90 degrees but its got nice color & I like the leaves. Do some dorsals just not stand tall or might it get better in another bloom if I can keep it alive... Orchids scare me... Anyway I saw another hybrid in spike I just had to have & hope the...

    paph superbiens var. curtisii

    I did not know it seems to be in bad taste to bring up old posts or that one should say its an old post as I was just informed on another thread of an old bloom but I had never seen it & it was worthy of praise. I never have been able to keep an orchid for many years & it would be nice to get...

    My First Paph Hsyining Web X Superbiens Opening

    Really hard to take photos of the color with the flash...it tends to lighten it. The pouch is really very dark a black purple. It is pretty dark but I really have nothing to compare it too. I've seen some drool worthy dark almost blacks I like too but I'll see how this goes. I get...

    Came in spike/bud almost 2 weeks ago & its opening!!! Wanted one for months & Trader Joes has been out of them ever since I put one back & then wanted one,,, Not huge bloom like the trader joes but decent size & I guess they get bigger as the plant grows? So far I find the color dark &...

    My first paph

    Not lucky with orchids but did try about 10 years ago. Now mostly Traders Joes phals. Then I did a bit more research on that lady slipper that so often was in my hands & wheeled around just to be put back. Most recently a huge purple lady slipper got put back for a purple whatever its called...
