Hi all

The week before last and last week saw me at my society's monthly meeting and that of TAPS. Some nice plants were tabled and I thought I'd share three with you.

This plant blew me away. That's four flowers plus a spike in the background that you can't see. The flowers were way bigger than my poor little boxallii (which I haven't included BTW). Needless to say it won the section.


This is Paph gardineri - I actually have a plant much the same size as the one tabled and am now hopeful mine will flower soon. The plant is diminuitive - leaf span not much more than about 8 inches. The flower with petals was held at right angles to the plant but probably very close to just as wide.




Paph wardii - The owner of this plant (President of TAPS) didn't look all that pleased by the condition of the plant but the flower was attractive enough.




There 'tis - hope you like them.

Cheers
Stephan
