Ah, a man after me own heart! I've always been partial to white paphs, and it's really good to see white breeding into multiflorals.This is gorgeous! I'd like to begin building a collection of these primarily white, multifloral hybrids. This cross is especially beautiful!
Dot - you had a 2006 picture of Deception II (niveum x delenatii) that I picture going onto Lady Isabel. I also picture the Sugar Suite (niveum x emersonii) that Donna Phillips had a picture of in 2005 going onto Lady Isabel. It is just hard to get these mating pairs together but if they ever took, it should be an even larger multifloral white with veining, I would think bigger than Woluwense of this niveum x Lady Isabel. I just like things that are pretty AND big.
Shrugging shoulders ..... 6 mos, a year or more? There are hybrids of plants that bloom during the opposite seasons, so we can guess 6 mos. I would guess it depends how fresh the pollen was & humidity. I sent pollen to Africa & Tyronne didn't use it right away.(Do we have any kids yet?)........ Which brings me to a question: Can Paph (or any orchid) pollen be stored in the refrigerator? If so, for how long?
