    Paph. Krull's Jealous Prince

    This is a cross of Paphiopedilum (Pacific Shamrock x Sorcerer's Stone) made by Frank Smith in 2008 and registered, well... yesterday. I brought a flask home from the International Slipper Orchid Symposium a few years ago and this is the first to flower. It has everything I love about green...

    21st World Orchid Conference Grand Champion - Angulocaste Olympus

    Just wanted to share this photo I found waiting on my phone this morning. I'm sorry, I don't know who the grower is, but I'm sure we'll find out as more information comes forth. Everyone I have heard from says it is a wonderful show.

    Peloric Multifloral at TIOS 2014

    One of the more unusual things we saw at the Taiwan International Orchid Show earlier this month. It wasn't displayed with the regular show entries, so it didn't have a name on it. Someone associated with the show told me they were quite sure it was Paph. Saint Swithin. Whatever it is, it's one...

    OH NO! Another "Guess The Hybrid" Thread!

    This near-primary hybrid and its siblings came from a flask I set out over 20 years ago. They never got attacked by bugs or pathogens, but never really grew all that much either. They just sat there. Small and unflowered for years. And sat there some more. Every year at repotting time when...

    Do You Recognize This Venerable Old Yellow Complex?

    Normally I'm not a big fan of these guessing games, but this flower has such a rich history that I thought I'd see if anyone recognized it - (Besides Tim and Theresa, and I suspect maybe Ross, of course!) If you are a fan of the wonderful old complex hybrids, it should be pretty easy to guess...

    A True Dwarf - Paph. charlesworthii 'Ball State'

    Bert Wright got this in May of 1980 when he did some trading with the curator of the orchid collection at Ball State University. This is about as colorful as it gets, but I suspect the dorsal might be a little darker if grown under cooler conditions. The five-growth plant is...
