    ...and here's our clone of Paph. lowii var "tomnjerryi" syn horizontalis in bloom again this morning. I think we'll try selfing it this time so we can offer a few seedlings down the road.

    Good to know. So will this bloom every year on a very large mature plant?

    Actually, the plant is compact compared to a standard lowii ( 16" leaf span vs 22" leaf span).......and the leaves are quite glaucous compared to the standard. It has been blooming every year or two - haven't kept records. It would be nice to have it described as either a new species or at least a variety of lowii, but for the time being, I think I'll just self it and make a few seedlings. Jerry Fischer and I both bought divisions of this clone marked "new species - lowii like" from Taylor Orchid about 10 years ago. As far as I know it was a wild clone.

    I agree! Lowii has so many variation depending on where they come from.

    Interesting thread. I think the petal presentation and stance make it very attractive indeed.
