As most know on here that I have been on the lookout for cool venustums.

So I found several colour forms of these venustums at the Tokyo Dome show which I will be hauling back to add to my collection. It’s amazing the colour variations that exists! There are red petals, orange petals, green pouch and reddish pouches. Check these out.

Those are really big healthy plants, did you ask for the culture? First pic shows white stuff on the older leaves of the biggest plant, heavy fertilizing? Excellent choices.
Thanks

Fantastic haul. I thought of going this year, but I'm in money conservation mode right now, hehe. I is great you managed to get all the necessary docs assembled for export. Ignorant question (number 2): are Japanese lines of breeding in this species better than in America?

The Japanese breeders secure the best plants from all over the world to breed with. Then they do line breeding for characteristics of colour and form, rather than size. As a result their plants are better coloured and form, and usually smaller. So yes, the flowers are usually top quality.

Look at these two plants I got today to join the venustum family. Good colour and form. Note that one plant had flowers with different pouch colours, due to opening in different temperatures. This means that colour can be influenced by low night temperatures (the colder, the darker) epigenetically. Fascinating!

Thanks for showing your venustum's!
Interesting how different the aim of breeding can be!

Great and furthermore one is disguising as P. wardii...:):)
But seriously I had to cover my keyboard to protect it from drool which is dripping out of y mouth. These flowers are excellent and I must admit so far I haven't seen such a abundance of quality in one place. Congrats

Yes that one is a giant wardii lol. Not as black or flat as the one I got last year but quite majestic.

And yes when I’m bored with them in 2 years or so, I will let everyone know here lol

And I’m so lucky to have found these babies which were on my want list (rather essential NEED list) since I saw the previous posts. So many enablers here and I love it lol.
