A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture of Paph. Royal Sapphire (Bel Royal x micranthum) on the same day that I made that cross, I also made Bel Royal x malipoense. We registered this cross as Paph. Memoria Pat Disanto. I have noticed there is some variation in color and shape of the flowers within this cross. Here are some pictures of that cross:

This seedling had very green flowers with well shaped flowers; very close to a Paph. Harold Koopowitz:



This seedling had slightly smaller flowers, that were more golden/green in color:



The whole inflorescense:



I am hoping once these plants are mature that they will have up to 4 fllowers per inflorescense (thanks to it's Paph. kolopakingii grand parent). I think Paph, kolopakingii has proven to be a good parent. Both this cross and Paph. Royal Sapphire seem to be more vigorous compared to Paph. Harold Koopowitz and Paph. Gloria Naugle.

Good job!

Hi Dot,

It was nice to see you in person! Dot came to visit us here at Orchids Limited, so I showed her around, and gave her the "grand" tour.

Thanks, Robert. In a few days, I'm going to post a new thread about my visit. I'll just say now that I was completely favorably impressed.
