hi everyone ,
I wonder who do you think are the great paph growers in our slippertalk forum in the USA?
I need some names and volunteers .
The reason I ask is that back in May 2019 I made a cross of two dark godefroyae, and the cross is quite fertile.
My Mom passed away last year, I hope you guys can help me growing them, and if there is a chance you guys get an award, as a favor just name my mom's name for the awarded clone, and if there is a chance that one of you already get it named , and if the next person feeling generous , he/she could still put her name with number 2 , 3 etc .
you own all the plants , there maybe a chance to get a few awards from each flask .
Let me know, if you want to do this , I need approx 15 good growers for this mission.
I will pay for all the flasking costs
you only need to pay the shipping when Shane Fletcher contact you .

thanks

Thank you for the condolence and the list of names, I hope with a little bit of time some of the good growers on your list will see the post and lend a hand , by the way the second flower ' photos were captured when it already passed it peak and a little bit tattered , in reality it was better .
I only have luck with making breeding pod, and lousy at raising seedling , last year I donated all the flasks of another godefroyae red vulcano breeding to Rob and only ask for the result from one flask later.

I’d be happy to help, I’m not far away. I’m not on that list level :D unless I have greenhouse space 👍

I keep trying to usurp space at work and they keep frowning at me :) :(
I’m no fantastic paph grower, so people who have space and skill should be first, but if there are still more available I can try to help.

We might even run into each other at New Jersey's orchid shows previously without realizing .
Anyway , it is the effort of all that counts , I am sure it will give us the chance that somehow we can give my mom a gift of being name for a clone. Would you like to be the third person on the list of growers ?

Yes we probably were at nj or sepos shows wandering around at the same time :) . Maybe wait and see how many other people who have space and are really good growers, and if needed I could help after that. I do have small space, so people with bigger areas etc should be before me 👍

I understand your sentiment & the logic you think about skill and available environment to grow as the key to the success of the project, I will certainly keep your name 1st on the alternate list then, in case we don't fill the other grower list , many thanks

Hien, I have some space in my greenhouse, however, I'm not a fantastic Paph. grower.
I could be an alternate perhaps.

Hien - I grow them OK. Sam Tsui is the best grower of these that I know, he has special skill with brachys. I get awards, that's a bit of skill but mostly just taking in a lot of plants.

I still have a few of the leucochilum (I think) that you sent a few years ago, but my success was not great... Like, really not great, not sure what happened. Not sure you should trust me with these. But I live half an hour from Shane.

I talked with Shane today , if I heard him right this cross is more fertile than the red vulcano one (perhaps 4 or 5 times more) , I don't think Sam would agree and be bothered to something so small and personal as this effort . I would hope that some one likes Tom (Kalina) wouldn't mind to do it as a favor to a fellow slippertalk member.
If you are up to it , we can reserve 1 flask for you as the 3rd person on the main list , since you are so close to Shane, pick up the flask is also a plus versus shipping, you entered plants for judging before so you have the experience in doing that already .
