In our shared breeding program to maintain the species conservation and to create superior genetic potential, ‘Halo’ was bred onto by pollen graciously donated by PaphParadise of their best vietnamense named ‘Claret’ AM/AOS (87 points) that has great shape and deep color pouch.

See ‘Claret’ pic below that was graciously given permission for me to use by the talented AOS photographer Ramon de los Santos.

I think a perfect match!!

In a few years, they should be available to sell by PaphParadise.

Lovely! And sticking to the celestial/religious metaphors: a match made in Heaven! 😇

Second bud just opening… still needs a couple days to mature.

Unfortunately the first flower didn’t take the pod from Claret. Will attempt again on this new flower.
