Dear Slipperfriends.
also when it was not allowed to visit the Exhibition at the WOC as a registrant I could make some pictures of interesting Phragmipedium

Here Phragmipedium kovachii 'Jewel' in the exhibition of Peruflora


Phrag. Cape Sunset - Eric Young X schlimii


Phrag. Suzanne Decker - kovachii X Cape Sunset


Phrag. Allison Strohm - kovachii X Living Fire


Phrag. Haley Decker - kovachii X St. Ouen


But also a very nice Paphiopedilum hybrid
Paph. Dick Wagner - bellatulum X xfanaticum



With best greetings

Olaf

OLAF - Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Did the Cape Sunsets really have that much yellow in them?

2 Days!!! :crazy: That Paph. Dick Wagner looks like a Paph Kevin Porter. I can't say I'm a fan of the toothiness of the Phrag Cape Sunset's lateral petals but the color is interesting. Thanx for posting.

Beat me to it Olaf! My heart broke a little bit when I saw it lying there, still beatiful though, and absolutely huge when comparing it to pre-kovachii stuffs, and even against any of the hybrids. It seems that if money is to be spent on kovachii hybrids itll be in the next generations, though that was kinda expected. It was too far into the display to get a good picture, Im glad you got one!

I think my jaw hit the floor when I saw that one of the display! Wow! I knew the WOC would be a show way way too big for me to even think about showing in for now but my oh my....now I understand! I will have to be a professional grower before I attempt a slot for a display in that show! Holy cow!

Beautiful pictures though. If you have more I know we would all like to see them.
