    Phragmipedium Susan Kulhavi (Saint Ouen ‘Ice Queen’ JC/AOS x andrettae ‘Ghostly’)

    Super! I love the balance, the color and you did a great job catching the crystalline quality.

    Epi kockii

    I think it could be awarded in the future. I looked at the previous awards. With a flower like this I would recommend that you put a bit of polish into your presentation. (Well, OK, this is always a good idea, even if you have a flower that can be seen from across a crowded room.) Maybe it...

    Paph. Jacqueline’s Spring Moon ‘Pacific Heights’ AM/HOS

    Thanks for the information! I'm sure I've seen HOS before and thought it was a typo. Now I will understand when I see it.

    Phrag. besseae f. flavum

    Thanks so much for mentioning temperature. I hadn't considered that as an issue, and my greenhouse gets up into the high 80, low 90s pretty regularly in the summer. I will try making some changes on where my bessies spend their time during the summer and hope that helps!

    Phrag. Ruby Slippers

    If you move your flower as far away as is reasonable from your backdrop, the backdrop can then be out of focus and will just look black. If you can go to local AOS judging, introduce yourself to the awards photographer and ask them if you could watch them take photos next time. If the...

    Phrag. besseae: Differences between wild types?

    Olaf, have you considered Timber Press? I don't know anything about book publishing, only that Mary Gerritsen and Ron Parsons have their books published there. It would be wonderful if your book was available again and in an English language version.
