Last weekend was our spring show and my Paph rothschildianum picked up grand champion of the show and was given an AM award. A big thrill to get an award for my favourite species. I have been growing this plant for about 12 years and this is the 2nd time I have flowered it. This plant is of New Zealand breeding from the cross 'Western Springs' AM/CSA x 'Janet' FCC/AOC, so it is not a line bred clone from TON or Orchid Inn. Nice in a way that an old style roth can still be awarded. I have flowered 6 roths now and this clone is far and away my best. The flowers are not large by modern standards, but I think it ticks all the other boxes - colour, balance and stance. The plant is still very small and compact. I was surprised it got four flowers, which is actually the first time I have gotten more than 3 flowers on a roth. I think this plant still has a bit of improvement in it. The flowers increased in size quite a bit from the first flowering.
