Paph parishii pollen

Slippertalk Orchid Forum

Help Support Slippertalk Orchid Forum:



The parishii that I have in spike now is a division of an awarded plant, 'SW College' AM/AOS. Doesn't look like it will be the greatest blooming, perhaps just because it was divided last year... looks like it will hold only 4 blooms this year, but when it was awarded, it had 8 or 9 on a spike with great color and impressive size.

I have some pollen saved from another parishii, this one:

This one has been pulled for judging, but didn't have deep enough color the time that it was considered, and I didn't use a light mover, so the dorsals were turned to one side. Its a great plant (8 blooms/spike on the first blooming), so I'll use this pollen if I don't find anything better, but I thought I'd check around.

What I'd really like is pollen from one of the more recent crosses that have a higher bloom count, like 'Jeanie' AM/AOS and a few others I've heard of that carry a dozen blooms or more. I've heard of another called '13 flowers' or something like that, too.

But I'd consider any parishii pollen :)

Just thought I'd let you know that the Phal. stuartiana and the Paph.callosum got here ok.:)



I don't think I posted these photos of this year's blooms, but maybe I did. Not as many blooms as last year, but two spikes (and the plant carried two pods until January.


I took photos for a 3D of this blooming, but since the spike didn't reach above the level of the leaves, it didn't really work out, and I haven't published it. I'll try again when 'SW College' blooms... the spike is already getting tall.

That's fantastic Matt.

I have a parishii that's been in low spike for 2 months now. Last year it blasted, but this round looks a bit healthier. If it blooms I'll be looking for pollen.
