    That's a great observation about send eriana. That plant has long petals which is obviously spectacular, but if you take away those petals and look at things like the dorsal sepal and general flower size, most Sandy's are kind of doggy-looking

    I agree totally... and who the heck knows what the judges want anyway? I hate that the judging system is subjective, and not specific, i.e. x points for color, x points for shape, etc, with clear standards

    This should be an interesting topic. What are you impressions/thoughts on current breding trends in paphs, especially multiflorals? I have noticed that plants I have acquired in the last couple of years have flowers that are 2 or 3 times the size of plants that I acquired 5 years or more ago...

    Big joke. Not an award. Zero. Zip. Tired of dragging plants in for AOS judging, only to have them passed, while inferior plants get awarded

    Paph SHIN YI'S PRIDE (2 plants)

    Here is a great example of two plants from the same grex bearing different flowers. Plant #1 has a very wide dorsal and synsepal, and its long petals hang freely, while plant #2 has narrower dorsal, holds its petals out more before they dangle. I am taking both for AOS judging this weekend. Both...
