    Paph philippinense var palawanense frma album x self

    Picked this seedling up at the Illinois Orchid Society show at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I’ve never heard of the clonal name ‘Tildy Babuska’, and a google search couldn’t get me any results either. Is anyone familiar with this plant? The tag also seems to have some info identifying the flask...

    An album Brachy x Multifloral backcrossed to Brachy…

    Coming up on five months post flasking of this seedpod, Paph. Jennifer Stage frma. alba (godefroyae x philippinense) x leucochilum frma. album. I’m expecting albino flowers from this weird backcross of an intersectional Paph hybrid (Polyantha x Brachypetalum) crossed back to Brachypetalum...

    Paphiopedilum philippinense roebelinii

    Paphiopedilum philippinense var. philippinense ‘Keith’s Smile’ AM/AOS

    Well, my hunch was right! It impressed the judges to give it an AM/AOS of 82 points! The owner JBarnes was anxiously waiting for the results since last night lol.

    Paphiopedilum philippinense var. roebelinii

    This plant is under my ward to bring to judging next weekend. Two inflorescences of 5 and 4 flowers with 15 cm twisting petals. Not as dark red as NESlipper though but stunning in its own merit.

    Has this cross been made? I haven’t been able to find any for sale. If anyone here has one in their collection they’re willing to share a division of, please reach out. 🙂

    First Flasks

    With quarantine in full swing, I’ve decided to really lean into the hobby and buy my first flasks. I took advantage of Sam’s Fourth of July sale and purchased five flasks— thaianum, niveum, leuchochilum, philippinense, and rothschildianum. Here they are on 7/8, freshly potted in a mix of...

    White discoloration—physical damage or something else?

    I received this Paph. philippinense in the mail last month. It had very minor shipping damage, nothing to be concerned about. However, I noticed where the leaves got creased, the tissue has become soft and white. Is this something to be worried about?
