Took a few more pics today in the sun. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

The pouch color is very intense dark glowing pink, contrasting with the bright lime green dorsal and purplish brown petals. The black spots also add to the playfulness of the flower. This color play is why I love henryanums!

Final size:
NS 8.4 cm
DS 4.4 cm width

Leslie, you can see one of the parents by using the search option... search/Slippery's henryanum and member/Trithor.
That's the year that the plant had 3 inflorescences each with 2 flowers. Some of my henryanums are just now coming
into bud. I'm checking the larger seedlngs but nothing so far. Fingers crossed. Jerry

Yes apparently there is an ecotype from the Chien Hoa province in Vietnam with these long flower stems, longer leaves and darker pouches. Not many survived the collection and redistribution travels, but luckily this one persists.

Hey Duck, all henryanums are beautiful in their own way and must be shown so we can appreciate two things:

1. Enjoy the cute playful flower(s)
2. Celebrate with the grower the blessing of blooming one!

In fact, it will show us that each species/hybrids come in all shapes and sizes. All are beautiful in my (and I’m sure many other’s) eye.

Leslie, sorry to say that but I've never seen an uglier plant which doesn't fit completely in your collection of rare and albino Paph. The easiest way to solve the problem would be........send it as fast as possible to me. Lol
I hope you understand I was just kidding.
Awesome plant and flower.

Dear Leslie
If you weren't such a nice guy, I would really start hating you! 😁
Hehe thanks 😏.

Hate is a strong feeling that can turn to more positive emotion of desire (and more orchid acquisitions). I merely serve as an enabler with my orchid pics 🤫.

BTW how are your henryanums doing, Jens?
I have a newbie opening its flower at the moment. Not large of size this time round, but the colouring looks promising so far.
Will give it yet another couple of days and then post - as Arnold said in that movie: "I will be back!" ;)

Eggplant has a small buddy that just came into bloom. Five weeks later, Eggplant is still unbelievably going strong! You can see how variable the shapes of these three henryanums are. Eggplants is more majestic, Hoodview is chunky and the new one is just a Lil’ Bro lol.
