I've broken this down into subgenera and specific intersectional combination, because I find this interesting, especially given the degree to which my collection is oriented towards "novelty" crosses. To keep things (relatively) simple, I didn't mark "SDLNG" vs. "NBS," but just put "PB" for "previously bloomed."

Now that I've got this organization together, I guess I'm in the market for intersectionals from (Parvisepalum x Paphiopedilum), (Parvisepalum x Sigmatopetalum), and (Brachypetalum x Sigmatopetalum). Feel free to let me know if you've got one of those lying around somewhere.

Hey! SE Virginia! I'm moving back to Blacksburg in a few weeks. Do you have any idea where the closest judging center is? I don't think I'll have anything that'll be worth however long the drive ends up being, but I'd like to know, just in case.

My guess is that the 'Blood Clot' referred to the huge amount of black warts on the petals. The hybrid with Hampshire Raven looked ok the first blooming (a little disproportionate), but the second blooming, this summer, was totally deformed, and the petals were so covered with warts that they curled around backwards in a strange and unattractive way. Maybe it'll get something worked out next year, we'll see.

On hybrid names: I am still looking for a Paph. Thunderous Burp. If anybody has a lead on this hybrid for me, please LMK. Also: Blc. Richard Nixon. I'll gladly keep (and even pay good money for) a big floofy overbred Catt. if it's named 'Richard Nixon'.

Much of the Subsp. Paphiopedilum listed have been acquired over the last year, so I've never seen a bloom on them. The only one I've got a pic of is one of the traditional big guys: McLaren Park x Mountain Meadow. (second pic)

Very nice way of doing it. I wish I could find the ambition to do it too.
Copy and paste my categories. You'll be done in no time! Unless you don't have a digital copy of your inventory to work from . . .


Now to get you a Phragmipaphium:poke:
Oh, is it time to have that argument again? Say, has anybody been working on a Mexiphragmipaphium yet?

Sue I'm not sure where the nearest judging center would be. I'm guessing near Richmond. A quick message to the ROS would send you in the right direction. I do know that some of the events in the Richmond and Tidewater area have had some judging.

Sorry . . . Duh. I misread "SE" as "SW" for some reason. I acted all excited because I figured you were several hours closer to Blacksburg than you are.

I figured that there'd be some center around Richmond, or maybe in D.C. What I'm wondering, I guess, is whether there's one in NC or KY that might be closer. Maybe I should just check the AOS website!

Ok, just did that. My closest seems to be Greensboro, NC. Your closest seems to be in the National Arboretum in D.C. Sorry, and thanks!

FWIW, I don't think that's dorky at all.

I actually designed a database in Filemaker Pro which is sortable by any of the fields, one of which is the subgenera groups. I like that I can view all similarly grown items by distribution or whatever. I think it is a very useful way to keep track of growing conditions.

Nice list Sue!

Wow Sue
You've amassed quite the collection, and I know you also have a considerable collection of non-slippers too. How many plants are you caring for these days?

BTW I didn't know that polyantha lumped the pardopetalums with the coryopetalums. And when did the barbatums become sigmatopetalums?

I thought the timing of your Entware comment was odd since I was just requisitioned for some pieces for an auction, and I haven't produced any in over a year.

Ah, it is you!

I prefer not to think about how many plants are in the collection. I've definitely been moving the collection towards slippers though, decreasing the number of non-slippers as I increase the number of slippers (and trying to move out the huge plants – I just found a home earlier this summer for my 9' Epiphyllum). But it's still way more than I could possibly pass off as anything approaching reasonable.

As far as the taxonomic issues, well, I'm just going along with Stephen's classification on slipperorchids.info, as this was easy, and I don't have strong opinions about taxonomy within genus Paphiopedilum. I'm sure if you posted a thread about polyantha v. cory/pardo, and one about the barbatums, we could get a real nice fight going in no time!

Oooh, yes lets!
;)

Seriously, I think Stephen uses Braem's classification as opposed to Cribb's. I got confused and used Cribb's for my database just because it was a little simpler and I haven't really decided on an informed opinion with regards to which is really more "accurate".

Hey there Sue

Very nice list and I agree with Heather about its not being dorky. I'm "toying" with trying to do something similar - especially after some short chats and insights I got at the Port Maquarie conference. I've been badly mistreating some of my plants.

Cheers
Stephan
