    Default Vinicolor Paph. in bud - (Paph. Hilo Red Shift x Paph. Hsinying Rubyweb)

    I guess I'm on a red/purple orchid kick right now. This is the vinicolor Paph. that did NOT succumb to mealybugs, thank goodness. So far, judging by the dark color under the leaves and the uniform dark burgundy in the bud itself, this should be a pretty one - and it's getting quite plump. Seems like awhile since I've had a paph in bloom.... And, just in case I (sshhhshhhh!!!) break the spike, I wanted to photo it in all its possibilities. I'll report in as it opens.
