Eric,
Yes, these are 2 of the Hybrids I have made. They are about 5 weeks out of flask. I will be receiving 3 more flasks from Troy next week, 1 flask of the Pinocchio x Love Song & 2 of the Pinocchio & fowliei.
I also have around 10 more in different stages (waiting to germinate - reflasking), I just sent him 2 last week, I just harvested 2 pods this morning, & have around 15 - 20 pods in various stages at home.

Cool, now I have to look up fowliei, and Love Song to see what the cross should look like and to see if I'll have to sneak up to Catskill! :D

Love Song is (sukhakulii 'Glow' x acmodontom 'Graceful')

I will probably sell some when they are bigger (6 months) or so.

There are some nice, vigorous seedlings. It will be interesting to see how the flowers turn out. Both Paph Pinocchio and Paph fowliei are vigorous growers which is always a good start when hybridizing. :)

Yes, they are vigorous growers. The fowliei blooms on a very young plant, single growth.

I acquired a fowliei alba from Glen (Piping Rock) when he was at the Mass Orchid show. It looks like it might be in early sheath now. I also got an Earl Koldyke (emersonii 'Angel Wings' x concolor 'Mellow Yellow') in spike.
