    Paph Bereneice

    This is an exception flower(s). The plant is flowering on one growth.

    Paph Malipoense

    Wow, I have not remembered to check. Certainly not overwhelming if there is any. I will check when I get home or in the morning.

    Paph Fanaticum

    I have seen a few of these blooms, but not enough to know what constitutes a choice flower. I know that the pouch can have more color and can have a different shape. The petals on this one seem nice, but I’m not sure about the dorsal sepal at all. What do you guys think? I actually just...

    Paph Malipoense

    Should be lower case m in malipoense, instead of capital since it’s a species. My bad...

    Paphiopedilum spicerianum ‘Hercules’

    Sometimes plants are so vastly different then the “standard” that they can freak the judges out. I don’t necessarily think that plant was treated with colchicine, but you might see where some judges could think it was. I don’t have any idea if polyploid plants can be awarded or not, but I’m sure...

    Paph Miracle ‘Victory’ AM/AOS

    The other I will say about this plant is that once it starts blooming it just continues to send out new spikes. The last time this plant bloomed before I divided her it was in bloom from early Feb all the way thru September. I think it had 6 spikes in all.

    Paph Miracle ‘Victory’ AM/AOS

    I think I got that plant in the early 00’s from a local greenhouse that is now gone. Funny thing is that I recently inherited a rather large collection and it contains 1 as well. So I actually have 3 plants and 2 of them are multiple growth large specimen type plants.

    Old School Awarded Paphs

    Betty Bracey ‘Meadowlark’ , Freckles ‘Corky’ , and Hunter’s Point ‘San Francisco’ are all older awarded paphs, but they are all new to me. What is remarkable about each of these plants that have each been open for at least 3 weeks and the former 2 going on 5 weeks is the heavy substance they...

    It is AM/AOS

    Paph Miracle ‘Victory’ AM/AOS

    This is the healthiest plant I have ever cultivated. I have repotted and divided it several times and I can’t remember a time when I had to remove a single rotten root!!! Certainly, I have done something correct, but I have reported 1000s of orchids and I have never had roots so healthy that I...

    Paphiopedilum maculatum (polyploid)

    So lots of questions. The smaller 2 plants are both sending up their first spikes so we have yet to see them. Like I mentioned I believe the smaller ones have been line bred, but they both have wavy margins. The three plants in the 2nd picture are all maliopoense for sure, it’s the plant in the...

    I do Mr. Happy and I will put it up later this evening when I get home

    Paphiopedilum maculatum (polyploid)

    This is an interesting example of what I was discussing above about polyploidy. The thee plants in this pic are all malipoense, but the 2 in spike are clearly different from the other one. The larger plant is most certainly a polyploid, while the two in spike probably are not, but they have most...

    Paphiopedilum maculatum (polyploid)

    Yea the lead margins are wavy, but that is a characteristic that polyploids also possess. The other phenotype that this plant has in common with or is typical of polyploids is the low ratio between the lead width vs the length. In other words the plants leaves are twice the width of any other...
