I figured as much about your lack of being "casual" about that. I admit it is one of my pet peeves when people leave off the "x sib" or "x self". It can be quite misleading to someone new to growing also.Bob Wellenstein said:This is a division, we are never "casual" about clonal epithets or cross designations. I wish everyone were, there are more people out there with plants they think are awarded because the sellers conveniently omit the "x sib". Paph fairrieanum 'Red' AM/AOS is one, not only because so many seedling from it were sold that way, but also because it's sort of like naming a Dalmation Spot, there are bound to be lots of them, and then when one gets awarded everyone thinks its theirs also. Patience to Heather, I have several photos I'll upload over a few days that will answer your questions, and a hell of a lot of patience to you Gideon, it depends on the particular clone and of course your culture, but you've got a ways to go. Paph. kolopakingii is a relatively fast grower for us, and the Riopelle clone is particularly vigorous as I'll elaborate on with the right photo. Matthew, there are fairly (relatively speaking) compact clones of this species around.
Awesome.Kyle said:If you go to Chuck Ackers web site you will see a picture of the CCE/AOS he got on his plant a few months back.
