    Let me join the chorus: stunningly beautiful! Congrats on the Award!
    Didn't they give you any recognition for culture?!

    Kind regards, Jens

    It looks like there was leaf damage that likely prevented a cultural award

    I think you would need a minimum of 4 or 5 spikes to be considered for a cultural award.

    Like your phillipinense: yet, another plant where I would die for a division! :drool: :drool:

    Do you have any information of its parentage from Sam (Orchid Inn)? As it might be easier to get a sib or offspring from him, when he is visiting Europe, than to get a division sent all the way from Australia?

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    Apologies to both you and Spaph - although I would still die for a division! :D
    (I also kind of wondered how the plant made it from Canada to down under... I thought it might have had something to do with the Commonwealth or what did I know.... And clearly, I didn't! :rollhappy: )

    Does the rightfull owner know of the parentage? Or should I possibly pm Eggshells to enlighten me on the subject?

    What a wonderful flower. I'm going to pull a "reverse Eric" and ask for a closer shot of the flowers. Stunning colors...

    That P. wilhelminae is truly magnificent! The culture is also magnificent!
    Way to go, Sam Tsui, for the breeding, to Eggshells for it's early culture, and to you for bringing it all the way to a much deserved FCC!
