I adore those slipper pict. with the hairy stems and growing buds (unfortunately, when the flower opens, there is sometimes a certain disappointment:confused: ). Jean

Well the competition ended while I was on vacation but I'm sure HCM won it was leading when I left. Have a look.

The HCM is one of the very best I have seen anywhere, the pink color in the flower may not be as intense as in others but it certainly has the shape. I like the delicate color though, very pleasing.

Yeah, Jim, I sorta like the pouch. Vietnamense as a species has a very variable pouch and most of the HCMs I've seen have a saturated pouch. I think the pink triangle goatee pattern is neat on the species and in this hybrid.
