    Tokyo Dome Gold Medal

    Lame. There are better complex out there. The good point is that their price won't skyrocket.

    Miscellaneous stuff

    I see. I've just discovered this thread and instantly recognized thrips symptoms in the very first pic you posted in 2008: Too bad we don't have a decent pest and disease forum section specific to paph (i.e not the rehashed all-purpose S.Bottom pics) with sumed-up symptoms, attempted cures...

    Is anytime a good time to re-pot paphs?

    Ho Chi Minh alba bud progression

    I bought this as a single-growth plant two years ago. When it first flowered I wondered whether it was a very good delenatii alba. Given that most delenatii alba I have seen are crap, I believe this is the real deal. The new growth took roughly a year to mature.

    Paph. tranlienianum

    That was a few days ago. Three flowers, all different. One has a large, upward dorsal. I'll try Jakub Szlachetko (x fairrieanum). I believe I saw a cultivar from the originator (posted the pic here a while ago) and it was fine.

    Darned false spider mites... *grumbles*

    paph. fairrieanum

    First fairrieanum begin to open. I got this one in low bud. It's not very good. Once I find a nice one I'll cross with best H. Ballantine I have (not the one bellow, but you get the idea). The outcome may be surprising.
