If there were actually a judging center close by I'd be tempted to bring it in for evaluation. 5" natural spread and bifloral as a first bloomer.



Paph. (Hsinying Viny x Eerie Flame) is one of the modern-day vinicolor paphs, so named because of the rich red-purple coloration of the flowers. Once rare and prohibitively expensive, good-quality vinis are now so widely available and inexpensive that any orchid grower can afford to grow an entire collection of them. This particular vini is relatively large for a first-bloomer (5" natural spread), and has loads of the warts that only a vini fancier could desire.

The key to selecting a true vinicolor seedling lies at the leaf base. The vast majority of vinis will have a prominent splash of red at the base of the plant, and this pigmentation often extends into the leaf undersurfaces as well. Only a very small percentage (1-3%) of plants will not exhibit this linkage between leaf base pigmentation and vinicolor flower coloration.

Very Nice! You're in Manhattan and there's not a judging center close by?
it's either Philly or White Plains I think...don't have a car (or the time, really).
