    Default Paph piccies needed.

    Just replaced a couple of the Paphs i lost & bought a couple of others(as well as a Phrag Noirmont from E.Young Foundation).
    I,ve searched the web for piccies of the 2 Paphs but can,t find any.
    Paph Sander's Pride x sanderianum
    Paph vietnamense x rothschildianum(i expect very like P.Delrosi).

    haven't seen either of them, but the first oughta look like sander's pride with longer petals. there are two versions of sander's pride floating out there, one with regular stonei (bolder and with better color) and the form made with platyphyllum, formerly stonei latifolium, which is lighter in color. that one has been renamed something, i forget.

    I can't imagine that viet x roth won't be an improved version of Delrosi. Hopefully it won't be as hard to bloom (hope roths wasn't the pod parent).

    What a plonker i actually ordered Paph Sander's Pride x Paph kolopakingii
    (this actually sounds more interesting).LS is 24" so hopefully it is pretty close to full size , i know Paph kolopakingii can get very big but the Paph kolopakingii used has a clonal name of "Compact".
    The Paph vietnamense x Paph rothschildianum has quite mottled leaves(LS is 12").
    The Phrag Noirmont turns out to be Phrag Mem Dick Clements"Trinity" 4n x Phrag longifolium 4n , this has the makings of a junior Phragenstein.Leaves are very long(over 28" long but fairly thin , natural spread is over 36".1 problem is the blooming growth(spike is a paltry 38" high ) & the 2 new growths are about 6" above the medium(looks like green mix).Looks like a definate change to s/h @ the weekend.

    The paph with the kolo does sound really interesting... guess it's been added to increase flower count... Also, does your vietnamense cross have shiny leaves? I love that characteristic from the vietnamense... lovely leaves even without the flower.

    Good haul Steve.

    Cheers
