    Nice plant! Thanks for sharing... I like the pouch color of your plant. I'll have to take a closer look, but I think the plant I have now is mostly green. Time to take a picture.

    nice! I also like 'natural' as opposed to 'round and flat', also with phal species. funny how advanced phal and paph hybrids both have the plastic dinnerplate look

    That's my biggest gripe about judging.

    I agree with you both. A spicerianum should look like a spicerianum! This one is lovely:clap:

    I love complex paphs. And I want to be as round as possible. But I want the species to look as natural as possible. I am happy with this one.
