    Hi Everyone,
    I'm brand new to this and this is my first posting.
    Here is Paph. Hengduan's Purple Tiger, a cross between tigrinum and callosum. It was purchased as a seedling in October, 2018 and just opened a few days ago. It took a few months from when the bud appeared to what you see now but I think it was worth the wait. I hope you like it too.

    Thanks, yes hangianum 'Wellington's Forest View' AM/AOS is my pride and joy. It scored 85 points last September and I think is the first hangianum to be awarded an AM by the AOS.

    Welcome Lori.
    Nice colorful Tiger.
    And indeed a nice hangianum (and is the only AM so far!)

    That is a beautiful flower and I love the shape... anything but big and round and flat. There are so many different sizes/shapes out there so why stick with the same thing all the time. I’d love to take something like that to judging.

    Thanks Phred. I like the tall, lanky shape of it too. It reminds me of sangii only larger.

    love it also... definitely colorful, and sangii like...

    made me wonder about curtisii and tigrinum (not registered)... wonder if it is tough pod to make.

    No doubt - VERY nice!!! :)

    Actually, I sold one to a Thai grower last May and he got an AM on it the next day... but he hasn't paid for the award yet, despite several reminders (he acknowledges the reminders and then does nothing). Oh well. :rolleyes:

    And Lori's scored higher and looks fantastic!
