Below are two of the paphs. that are currently open in the greenhouse. The first one is one of Sam's crosses. I've had it for a couple of years and this is it's first bloom. I think it likes getting out of S/H growing and going back into a bark mix. As you can see from the photo the flower is being held up above the foliage so that we can enjoy the bloom. Naturally, the stem is weak.



The second photo is a nice complex paph. The cross is Stone Lovely 'Ching-In' x Paph. In-Charm White 'Chao Chou' BM/TPS.

Jean, it's just shy of 8 m.m. So I would say that it is average in size. However this is a first bloom seedling with only a single 6 1/2 inch growth. Once the plant gets stronger I'm hoping that the flower does get larger in size. I may have a couple more of this cross, if I do and they bloom I'll need to compare.

Both ar very nice, I like the Baroness for her shape, and the bellatulum is nice all over. Eight cm is not bad for a first bloom.
