    Paphiopedilum Toni Semple album (watercolour painting)

    Here is a small watercolour painting I have just completed. It is of my P. Toni Semple album (lowii album x haynaldianum album). It took me much longer than expected because I have been very distracted by trying to find my missing cat (Fabi), who has been lost since 12th Feb. now.

    Cuppy (peloric?) Brachypetalum hybrid

    Paph. Payakka Kodkod (concolor x thaianum) purchased in-bud this past summer (July 2020): Same plant, bloomed again January 2021 while carrying a seedpod: Thoughts? When it was blooming the second time around the petals were so cuppy that they needed a little nudge to allow the flower to...

    Phragmipedium Saint Ouen var. flavum

    I’m really happy with this one’s shape—wide, flat petals. There’s a slight deformation of the pouch on its side that I’m hoping will correct itself on the next flower. The peachy color is really pleasant, too. 😌

    No I.D. Cattleya behaving strangely

    As for most of the no I.D. orchids in my collection (and there are many), this orchid was given to me by a neighbor moving away to a colder climate.

    Paph. Chou-Yi Rookie

    Two of my rothschildianum x thaianum from Sam are starting to open up. These are first blooms for both plants so I was expecting some funky flowers, but strangely enough one of them seems to have misshapen pollinia that also lack the “cap” I’ve seen on others. Can anyone here weigh in on this...

    Signs of successful Paph pollination

    What are signs to look out for successful pollination? I’ve read of flowers falling off and leaving behind the ovary; I’ve also heard of checking to see if the pollinia is “stuck” indicating that the pollen tubes have grown into the pod parent. Are these things true, and if so what is the time...

    Phrag. x roethianum? Phrag. Rio Mira?

    How does one differentiate between these two hybrids of P. hirtzii and P. longifolium? P. x roethianum occurs naturally, so does that mean only plants descending from wild populations can be called P. x roethianum? And plants with a P. hirtzii parent and a P. longifolium parent bred in captivity...
