Well, folks....I've been humbled from the news of last evening.

Four of our VA Orchid Society members traveled to Miami and put in an exhibit at the WOC. From collecting the plants to coming up with a theme to driving straight through...quite an effort. I was set to go but got a chance to get my foot in the door with a new client so I stayed behind.

I got the news that one of my paphs, Paph. Mem. Larry Heuer, won the BEST PARVI HYBRID trophy and a Silver Medal from the WOC!!! I'm pretty stoked! This was the second blooming of the plant and the bloom was larger with bolder colors than the first blooming. It is in a 4" plastic pot with a CHC/Aliflor/perlite/charcoal/oyster shell mix.

Enjoy the pics!

Well, Garland will have to confirm where he got it, but the flower looks like our grex we sold a few years back, and I took a few of the first to flower to the Paph Forum along with some unflowered ones for sale, and Garland has always been a pretty astute buyer (I remember they sold within a few minutes). If it is our grex, it is indeed true Memoria Larry Heuer made on malipoense with very large, select parents.
An image of some of thhe plants we took that year to the Paph forum with three or four of the MLHs:

I'm just giving G a hard time. However, what will determine the difference between the emersonii and hangianum crosses is fragrance.

I think if it is a Hang cross the staminode shield is different and resembles hang. Also the pouch and proximal flower will be hairy and fragrant. Does anyone else have any info/thoughts they can share on this subject?

Fantastic!!! Congratulations

Congratulations Garland for such a prestigious award. My plant to the back right of yours is turning green with envy (as am I). Mem. Larry Heuer has really proved to be an outstanding hybrid and yours is wonderfully grown as usual.
