    Don't call it an obsession. Treat it as a passion and you will be happier.

    Nice saves! I think the second Paph. hybrid is Paph. Honey, which is Paph. primulinum x Paph. roebelinii...

    Hehe, your grocery store is the same is mine (I have Milt Red Tide, Onc Sweet Sugar and my paph looks very similar...)!

    Regarding that Onc though - I have had bad experiences with those from the grocery store. Mine are always mounted on sphag in the pot with bark mix onto and the roots have rotted away completely now twice. I advise repotting as soon as possible. Right now I am still nursing my second go at one of these.

    My paph is a noid, so I don't really know for sure, but it looks a little more purple, so i doubt we have exactly the same one. Just very similar - mine bloomed for months since it is a sequential, which was great!
