Hi. Here is a picture of our recent haul. We were just a little bad.:evil: The slippers in the picture include: Paph. Stoned Susan (Susan Booth 'Kilworth' x stoni), Paph. Susan Booth 'SY' x Prince Edward of York 'DB', Paph. Wossner Tigerhenry(henryanum 'Spot Master' x tigrinum 'Always-In-Bloom'), Paph. philippinense v. roebelinii('Summer Glory' x 'Red Spider'), Paph. concolor('Spotty' x 'Dudley Ott') and Phrag. schlimii 'Pink Ice' x wallisii 'Tower Grove'. Most are seedling or a little older.I photographed the concolor separately in an attempt to show the silver markings, but the picture still doesn't do it justice.

Thanks for the picture Jon. Your concolor is such a beauty, hope mine will be too one day. Do you have any idea how old yours is or how vigorous they are?

My sister, mother and I have around 60 different species of orchids, 22 if which are paphs and phrags(and to think we're just getting started). By species, I mean different hybrids too. I'm still compiling the list on my new computer, but I will post a complete list when I'm done.
Thanks,
Barb.

They do. Very artistic, that always appeals to me. Now if only I could go to Savannah.....before WINTER really hits.

Nice haul Barbara! Judging from the tags I would say you did your shopping at Clouds Orchids. :D Claudio and Warren have some fabulous stuff!

Yes, Clouds have given me new confidence in growing orchids. I have limited success with plants from other places. Even plants that are slightly stressed coming from Clouds will make a full recovery if given the right TLC. And that is a rare event. I just love them.:smitten: If only I had discovered them 5 or 6 years ago, oh well better late than never.

Those really are nice markings on the concolor. I also like the way there's like a plastic layer covering the markings, really cool!
