    Paph. micranthum var. album

    I have this plant about to flower. I also have a second one with a spike also. I was thinking about doing a sib cross with them but wonder perhaps if this is a bit risky due to the size of the plant? Any thoughts?

    Black day in New Zealand

    Today white supremacists carried out an unspeakable mass murder of muslims here. 49 are dead. This is the most horrifying thing ever to occur in this country. I have lost faith in my fellow humans. RIP. Peace and love to the victims and their families.
