    Phragmipedium besseae painting

    Here is a recent painting I did based on another growers impressive three-flowered besseae. I tried to give an overview of the species, showing its various forms and a vignette of an imagined patch of suitable wild habitat. Hope you like. Chris, UK Ps. It is still for sale, please pm if you are...

    Paph. Haur Ji Lucky ??

    Bought as P.Haur Ji Lucky (gigantifolium x adductum) from Asendorfer in Germany, but not sure the label is correct - certainly not like other examples of this hybrid online. Looks to me like there has to be some roth in the mix. What do people think?

    Oil and Acrylic Paintings of my Slippers

    Finally had the chance this year to paint some of my slippers. Mostly studies in my sketchbook so far, but also a more finished oil painting of Paph. Stone Praetorian (stonei x glanduliferum) and a mixed media piece of Paph. Duke of Burgundy (JBurkhardt x Lady Isobel). It makes a nice change...

    Paph. Memoria Joan Levy

    I was eagerly awaiting this one, as I love stonei and gigantifolium. The buds were so dark I wasn't convinced it was labelled right, but very happy with it for a first flowering. A variety of shots in different light/backgrounds. As you can see, the colours look very different, depending on the...

    Paph.Franz (PEOY x gigantifolium)

    Another single bloom first flowering. I'm biased when it comes to gig hybrids, but I love the look of this one. Fingers crossed for 3 or 4 next time.... Chris, UK

    Paph.Crowning Glory (JB x sandy)

    Recent first flowering. Only the one bloom, but a nice sized one, so potential for the future. Purchased from Orchids Limited a couple of years ago at the Brit Paph Society meeting. Chris, UK

    Paph.parishii ('Jeanie' x 'Andy')

    Chuffed to win Best Paph Species at the British Paph Society (BPS) annual meeting with this first flowering parishii. Bought as a single growth seedling 3years ago from Sam Tsui. Dorsals have twisted more than I would have hoped but pleased with 6 flowers. Chris UK

    Rhyncattleanthe Fu Shu Glory 'Happy Holiday'

    First flowering. Shame its only one bloom this time, but look forward to seeing it with more in future. The white colour and yellow stripes took over two weeks to develop, but worth the wait. Appropriate for Christmas - Happy holiday everyone! Chris Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Susan Tucker x sanderianum

    Only open a few days, so not sure if the petals will lengthen more from the sandy and if it will turn whiter. Pleasantly surprised considering the wildly different parents though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Lowii 'New Horizon' x 'Grand Masterpiece'

    First flowering, very pleased with the shape. Orchid Inn breeding. Will take another pic when all the buds are out. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Paph.Yellow Tiger...?

    Labelled as Yellow Tiger, which should be platyphyllum x glanduliferum/praestans. But looking at the red pouch, dorsal stripes and compact plant I think this more likely was made using stonei instead of platy, which makes it Paph.Stone Praetorian. What do others think? First two flowers are...

    Phili var.roebelini twin spike

    Second flowering for me on this plant. Great to get the two spikes, but only three per this time (5 last time). The growths seemed in a hurry to bloom, being much smaller than the last one. Anyone know if this is just the way of it sometimes, or am I perhaps underfeeding the developing growths...

    ViniMaudiae type - Tristar Mabo x Hung Sheng Bay

    Just a few pics of my newest acquisition, from the British Paphiopedilum Society Annual meeting a few weeks ago. Many thanks to Elite Orchids for it. An InCharm cross originally. I absolutely love the colour, which as you can see can looks very different in different light conditions. A big...

    Phrag.Leslie Garay (prev.Grande)

    The petals are still lengthening, but thought I might not get the chance to take some more pics over Christmas. Bought as Phrag.Grande, but as I understand it this is now classed as Leslie Garay (longifolium x caudatum). Either way, has the pink and green combo I was hoping for! Sent from my...

    Philippinense var.roebellini

    Been waiting for this one to finish its petal lengthening before taking any pics, but as I noticed the first flower is starting to brown I guess its done. Pleased with the flower count and general form, but wish those petals were longer and the petals darker (the white-background photo is more...

    Lady Isabel x Johanna Burkhardt (first multi flowering..yay!)

    My first multi flowering - just the one flower, but really pleased with the outcome. Dimension for those interested - NS and petal length 15cm, Dorsal 6cm by 4cm wide, whole plant has a 70cm leafspan. BTW - Does anyone know if this cross has a registered name? I can't find it listed with RHS or...

    Hung Sheng Eagle confusion

    I recently bought a yp of what I thought (and still hope) is a Paph.HSEagle. Good news is its growing well, but I noticed today it is labelled as roth x gig, whereas the bluenanta database lists HSE as gig x roth. Further confusion, as looking at vendors sites and threads here I see both...
