A first bloom seedling. It will have eight flowers when they are all open. I bought this several years ago as a 16" LS seedling...it's now 40" across.

I agree that the color is very rich and dark! Does it smell like cat box? :)

Ernie....that's FABULOUS!!! I have lusted over your 'Riopelle' ever since I first saw it. If you ever have a division AND I win the lottery you must tell me. It's gorgeous!!! Congrats (belated) on your awards...well deserved! I had a laugh over the cat pee story as well. Thanks!

It's not mine!!! I was just caught trying to make off with it! :) It belongs to Chuck Acker of ex-Orchids by the Ackers near Madison, Wisconsin. A division of these monsters would cast a healthy shadow on a specimen of most other Paphs. :)
