Rothschildianum pictures thread

This is the first Paph. rothschildianum sib cross that I made here at Orchids Limited. It is a cross between Paph. rothschildianum 'Borneo Dark' x Paph. rothschildianum 'Dark Chocolate'. The background of the 2 parents are the clones Roth 'Rex', 'Mt. Millais' and 'Commander'. I selected both parents at the time for thier darker than usual flowers, and I think it shows in the progeny. The first seedling that bloomed had pretty dark flowers. We noticed that all the seedlings from this cross were pretty vigorous. I made the cross on April 16 2001. The first seedlings got planted out of the lab on November 8 2003, and the first seedling bloomed on February 11 2008, so that is in 4 years and 3 months after coming out of the flask!

Here is a picture of Paph. rothschildianum 'Darth Vader'. It was the first seedling from the first Paph. rothschildianum sib cross that I made here at Orchids Limited.

more roths's from Orchids Limited

Here are some more pictures of some of our "select" roths:

This is Paph. rothschildianum 'Borneo Dark' (The parent of 'Darth Vader'):



Paph. rothschildianum 'King Cobra' it is a seedling of Paph. rothschildianum 'Rex' x 'Mount Millais'; it was featured on the cover of our 2003/2004 catalog:





Paph. rothschildianum 'King Willem'. I am not sure what the parents are of this one. I believe both parents were "jungle plants":

That's a pretty short term to grow a P. rothschildianum to flowering size and flower it !!! I'm impressed not even by that but also by the beauty of the flowers especially the deep ruby/vine-red of the pouch.

Best regards from Germany, GuRu
