    Happy New Year:clap::clap::clap:

    Been super busy and will probably disappear again soon, but thought this was an exciting way to start 2017.

    In 2006 I got wardii pollen from Gilda's 'Charles' (Gilda in East TN) and put it into a generic wardii I had from Andy's. Both parent plants have subsequently been lost.

    This breeding produced some really nice progeny including 'Prince Charles', AM/AOS awarded in 2011.

    SlipperKing Rick in TX sent me some pollen from an exceptionally dark wardii clone called 'Blackbird' that I put into one of the other Charles sibs in 2011.

    Now here at the end of 2016 I have an open bloom from that 2011 breeding (and my first 2nd generation breeding of a Paph)!

    Check these out:wink:

    There are 7 growths (mix of post and unbloomed) growths in the Prince Charles basket. The Blackbird/Charles plant has only 2 growths and actually blasted its first bloom this summer (way too hot this summer).

    So thank you ST for bringing me together with all these amazing slipper nuts for 10+ years of orchid friendships.

    I agree with Dot. The wait is well-rewarded with both
    friendships and very nice plants.
