My Visit to Krull-Smith
I realize this thread is a little stale, but I had the opportunity to visit Krull-Smith this week, and even though there isn't very much in bloom this time of year, some of the paphs that were in bloom really blew me away.
There was a Paph. Dollgoldi with flowers that must have been 9" wide and the color was the brightest yellow you could imagine. I would really loved to have hauled this one home, but it was already sold.
The most amazing paph I saw was a Paph. Gloria Naugle that had the most intense reddish-purple color I have ever seen on a paph, and petals that were super wide and flat. This was one of those orchids you see from clear across an orchid range the minute you walk in the door and you make a straight line over to it while ignoring all the other wonderful things you pass along the way. I've seen probably 500 Paph. Gloria Naugle and if ever I thought one could get an FCC, this would be it. Frank was just getting ready to take some photos of it and he said he would email me a copy. I will post it here if that happens.
This is probably the plant.
I am really glad that a friend contacted me about splitting the cost of K-S's Dollgoldi. I hope to have my division in a few weeks. Rusty
Wow - what a great idea! The plant was big enough that you both are going to have a really nice sized division. I looked at the auction listing, and as far as I'm concerned the photos in the auction listing are pretty wimpy compared with the real thing. In real life the flower is many times more impressive!
That is very cool. A wonderful partnersip.
Actually, I tried that once. I bought the plant and was supposed to get a division. Unfortuntely, it got traded back to the vendor for another plant without my knowledge until after the fact.
To be honest with you I was not sure I wanted in on the purchase due to space issues. [can't wait for the plant]. Time to get rid of a few more phals. Let's see I bought three plants from Poter's last week, have four plants coming from Marriott Orchids and the K-S Dollgoldi. Nah, I don't have a problem! :rollhappy: rusty
This is my first post. Hello Rusty
Hello Paphioland! Welcome!
Anyone know how to upload a pic
I sent you a private message asking if you needed help. You seem to be having problems. Check out this thread about photo posting...
If you need more help, send me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
What's that webby stuff on the top one???
What cultivar of Paph. rothschildianum is this? Are you posting this photo in the Krull-Smith thread because that's where you got it?
Was this one recently shipped, or is that cobwebs on the top flower? If it is the latter, then the flowers must last a very long time! :rollhappy:
Looks like you have the same tiny spiders I have...they love to make their webs on the flowers. I try to remove the webs before taking pics, but you can see the webs on many of my photos.
