    Question Paph ID??

    Well I bought this at an orchid show several months ago in bud, it's obviously mislabled because when i brought it home i looked up the name on the tag which is a fairly common variety (Paph. Supersuk 'Eureka' x Paph Raisin Pie 'Hsinying') it showed something very different than what i had. The 3rd pic of the bud isn't really what it looks like in natural light(it's just really red because of the flash), it's black and also the underside of the foliage is a very dark purple. It's done blooming now so i don't have any more pics of it.

    Does anybody know what it is? Thanks DREW

    Looks like a Paph Tuxedo Junction x Red Glory I flowered a while back.

    Thanks Roy I appreciate it, but I looked the name up on yahoo and I coulndn't find anything, so then I went on bing and the first site that came up was the orchidtalk site ( http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...dark-paph.html ) and it was your post!! But the paph here doesn't look like the one I have (is this the one your talking about?), like I said the picture isn't the greatest because of all the glares, sorry, but a little bit of the center of the flower is bright lime green(like yours) and it has the black 'raisin' looking things on the two petals and the entire stem and backside of the flower is covered in thick black hair. Thanks so much again DREW

    Woops, I picked the wrong cross, I remember which one I should have posted. I'll see if I can find a pic and post it. Not thinking clearly putting what I did.
