I think we had just about the best selection of vendors and plants ever put together in the history of the International Slipper Orchid Symposium. I was very happy to meet so many Slippertalkers and hope to see even more next year.

Hi everyone. PAS0631 bloomed after 4 years. It turned out to be Paph PEOY. Not Paph sanderianum. Got a confirmation from Sam.

Hi Peter, good to see you are back on. I last saw you after your lecture at Guayaquil WOC.

This reminds me of the OZ incident 10-15 years ago where the highly sought after sanderianums all turned out to be PEOY.

I wonder how this mix-up can happen? The lab or the pod?

After 4 years wait it must have been quite a disappointment though PEOY isn't a bad hybrid and almost P. sanderianum....but only almost.

That's is disappointing. Do you know if the mixup impacted all PAS0631? Or was this a plant tag mix up?

Thanks for the heads up!

My most heartfelt commiserations! Must feel a bit like when the first "philippinense" I bloomed, turned out to be St.Swithin! (and somehow it seems that this species is jinxed for me!) :oops:

I like your PEOY although I would be very disappointed if I was waiting for the sanderanium flower and it was not. Since the Symposium was cancelled in 2020 I hope it is on in 2021. I have not attended since 2006 but will likely attend every year now.
