    Default Two Paphs- same tag but different look

    My husband came home from work last night and told me he needed a cable from the box store. We went together, but I didn’t feel like looking at the cables so I was looking around the store (not particular department…LOL) He picked what he needed and called me to meet him at the register. While I was rushing to get there I noticed two paphs were running with me… They followed me to the car, got in… Do I need to say more in my defense? LOL When we got home I asked them for their names. They both answered at the same time – they had the same name but looked different. The funniest thing was all the paphs in the store had tags with the same name, but their buds and leaves were different. Here is what is on the tag: (Paph. Supersuk ‘Eureka’ AM/AOS x Paph. Raisin Pie ‘Hsinying’) x Sib

    They may actually be the same cross. Wait till we can see the blooms.

    Cheers,

    Gin is right and by their label it appears to be a seed cross...can't wait to see them in bloom! Is that 3 spikes on one plant?

    lucky you! careful though, once these Paphs get in, they just keep inviting more of their friends and next thing you know... well, say goodbye to space!

    looking forward to seeing how these two siblings turn out.

    btw, the cross can be shortened to - Paph. Hsinying Alien

    Hi Margo,

    I think both are probably labeled correctly because seedlings from the same cross can vary quite a lot, and (as Gin & Ron have pointed out) these probably were seedlings that came out of the same flask or series of flasks. Keep in mind, you can't mericlone a Paph, so all clones are divisions of an original plant and that takes much more growing time to raise a plant to saleable size.

    By the way, according to OrchidWiz, this cross (Supersuk X Raisin Pie) is named Paph Hsinying Alien. I'd suggest adding a clonal name--your choice is limited only by your imagination!--to each, when they bloom.

    Anyhow, I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing the blooms when they open. Crosses with sukhakulii in them, and this one is about half sukhakulii, are among my favourite paphs!

    Cheers,
    Rob
