  1. Paph Paradise

    Paphiopedilum violescens

    An unusual little species from New Guinea. These can be very challenging to grow. I have only seen one plant that wanted to hang on to its old growths. Most seem to lose the older growths as the new ones mature. Might have been the strain I was working with before. This strain seems to be very...

    Paph Magic Paradise 'Niagara' AM/AOS

    We were finally able to have judging yesterday! This plant received an 88 point AM/AOS. This is the first award to a hybrid made by Paph Paradise (all previous awards to our breeding were species). This particular plant has the best color we have seen from the cross so far. There have been a few...

    Paphiopedilum tigrinum season

    We usually get flowers from this species in May and September. Our crazy hot weather caused a few plants to blast their buds this spring. These two clones flowered and we have made the reciprocal crosses. Last year's pods had good germination in the lab so we hope to make more of these...

    Paphiopedilum emersonii

    I lost my best one a few years ago when it got too much water over the winter. This first time bloomer will do nicely! A few more siblings are in bud so hopefully there is at least one more keeper among them. Dave

    Interesting colored Phrag manzurii

    This little guy popped open a few days ago with a pretty unique color pattern. I selfed it to see if we can get more like it. Dave

    Phrag Peruflora Cirle Alca

    Our Phrag collection is growing rapidly. We recently acquired a large number of plants from Ecuagenera. When the Santa Barbara show was cancelled we bought most of the Phrags they had brought with them. It helped make the best of a bad situation. They got rid of a bunch of plants and we got to...

    A couple black petaled Paphs

    Paph Macabre Illusion and Mystically Contrasting. Most of the Mystically Contrasting have had a pink background but this one did not. It has a petal width of 3.5 cm on a small, first bloom plant. The pollen will go onto this Macabre Illusion.

    Paph sukhakulii

    Paph sukhakulii 'Cabernet'. This is seedling from a sibling cross made by Tetsu in Japan. Solid pouch color is something I have been looking for in this species. The other flower on the plant was pollinated with a very dark flower that Leslie Ee was kind enough to share from a Tokyo Orchid...

    Paph purpuratum album...finally!

    This seedling came from a flask I got in Japan a couple years ago. The parents were both type but half album. The bud seemed to take weeks to open! The plant is very tiny so the flower was immediately cut off and the pollen was put onto a type sibling. Hopefully it was a sibling carrying the...
