Hi -- I'm posting these for Slippery, who has been having problems getting them on. This Paph has an HCC from several years ago, and was recently awarded a CCM of 86. It also was shown at the Orchid Growers' Guild show in Madison, where it won blue, Best of Class, President's Award, and Best in Show.

We're having problems living with Slippery these days.:evil:

Paph. venustum award

The plant was purchased as a small seedling 6 years ago in the spring
and by December the same year it was sending up a spike. It had a
small setback in 2010 (stepped on) and lost 3 growths, but it's back.
This plant wants to BLOOM. On two previous bloomings, it has bloomed
on new growth with only one 1" tall leaf.

That is a very nice venustum -- congratulations, Slippery!

I'd like to hear more about you and your magic wand! I've never seen
such a gorgeous venustum. Congratulations and the awards are well-deserved.

Both a wonderful clone and specimen. The plant also looks immaculate. The leaves are wonderful. I could never see my plant multiplying enough to get that many flowers.
