In case the regular membership is feeling left out of the fun, we're going to run a contest for you to participate in too!

Below are ten images which have been borrowed from the archives here at Slippertalk. Each image is a cropped piece of the larger photo. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify as many of these species and/or hybrids as you can. Each positive identification will enter you once into the drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the orchid vendor of your choice. Anyone who even attempts to identify the orchids gets one entry as a reward for trying. So, each participant has the potential for 11 entries into the drawing.

This contest is open to all members. Please email your guesses to admin@slippertalk.com. Only one email is allowed per member, so be sure you put your best guesses down before sending. The contest will end on Saturday, Sept. 30th at midnight.

If any growers or vendors would like to sponsor a second and/or third prize in the form of a plant or certificate, please let John or Heather know.
Good luck!

UPDATE!

A second prize has been generously donated by Robert Bedard Horticulture! The second place winner will have the choice of a beautiful Paph. Michael Tibbs (armeniacum x philippinense) OR a $30 gift certificate to RBH! Be sure to check out his new vendor thread.

Here are the answers, for those of you who are curious as to how many you got right!

1.Paphiopedilum moquettianum aka glaucophyllum
2.Phragmipedium wallisii
3.Paphiopedilum druryi
4.Neofinetia falcata
5.Phragmipedium Beverly Fischer
6.Cypripedium parviflorum var. pubescens
7.Phragmipedium besseae
8.Paphiopedilum tigrinum aka markianum

We accepted entries listed as Cyp. parviflorum var. pubescens,
pubescens, or parviflorum. We accepted both primulnum and primulinum var. album, and we accepted either moquettianum or glaucophyllum.

We like to accept all valid taxonomical belief systems here at Slippertalk. ;)
