    Paphiopedilum tigrinum forma smaragdinum

    Popow Orchids posted this today on FaceBook and caused a sensation. It’s the album or rather alboviride version of tigrinum. It’s absolutely stunning, majestic form with jade green color. An ethereal presence! Pictures sent to me by Boscha with permission to post on here: More details...

    Two 'Bud' Brothers of Exuls

    Another exciting moment for me. These two 'bud' brothers are from half album exul breeding from Sam. One looks album! They look 'popping' lol. Surrounded by their exul album cousins.

    Paph. hirsutissimum alboviride/album

    Just opening... will get larger and more petal twisting... color glows like a fresh green alpine meadow. Maybe I'll name him 'Spirit of the Forest.' or 'Fuzzy' lol. The sibling received an FCC/AOS in Chicago in 2018 (Sam's Choice). More pics to follow when fully open.

    Today was day 3 from opening of this first-bloom seedling from Sam and my first-ever orchid pollination! Here’s hoping for success. Anybody want to give me tips on maturing the pod? Sam will be flasking but he grows in a phenomenally state-of-the-art facility, whereas I am but an...

    Paph. dianthum album ‘Only the Lonely’

    Poor thing had two buds dropped off earlier in spike development. Now a lonely flower stands guard by itself on a tall spike a foot from the base. No wonder his toes are curled lol. Still expanding I think. Will see in a few days if he brazens up.

    This one came in bud from Tokyo Dome show. Kinda small and floppy. But rare enough to keep. First bloom seedling from Popow. There’s an unbloomed second seedling that may have better flower in future lol. In a 4 inch or 10 cm pot.

    Paph. venustum album x Paph. henryanum album

    I bought this plant with the hopes of blooming out an album primary of a henryanum shape (esp a rounded dorsal) with the markings of venustum, with a possible white lip. However it turned out to look like a pure venustum album. The breeder Zephyrus said that sometimes a mother plant will self...

    Paphiopedilum Saiun ‘Glow Stick’

    This LeHua primary hybrid was between the alba forms of wardii x sukhakulii. This second bloom was much larger than the first one, 13 cm vs 9 cm. I was pleasantly surprised. Almost auctioned it off last weekend as a donation to my local orchid society. Luckily I kept it to see flower. I called...
