    Default NOID Paphs.

    Couldn,t resist & bought 2 mystery Paphs
    These were described as 2 & 3 growth plants.Actually the 3 growth plant has 1 bloomed growth , 2 large growhs(almost flowering size) & a couple of small growths.The 2 growth plant has 1 previously bloomed , 1 half grown & a couple of small growths.Leafspan is about 14" to 16" for both.Paid the same price as a Phal from a nursery so not a lot of money.
    Go on have a guess to what they are & we,ll see when they bloom.

    These are under my benches in the g/h for a bit of R & R after repotting.

    I haven't the slightest clue as to what kind of paphs they are, but I wanted to wish you good luck with them. I can't wait to see the blooms!

    Why not take a guess -

    1. A fairieanum cross

    2. A Macabre cross

    Oh no, no, no, Diane!
    I disagree,
    it's Obviously
    1. A spicerianum Cross

    2. A philippinense Cross

    or is that
    1. A callosum cross

    2. A superbiens cross
    ?

    Oh darn,
    whichever they turn out to be, uncasteeb,
    have fun blooming the mystery plants.
    I hope they turn out to be winners.

    Not likely.
    No red @ base of the leaves or stem.
    I guess 1 is definately a multi-floral , the other .
    P. sukhakulii or hybrid seems favorite to me.
    Keep guessing guys.

    Well, I don't like your chances of getting a maudiae in that lot Steve... no mottling in the leaves... callosue, sukhakullii, lawrenceanum, etc which is used in the maudiae types have mottled leaves...

    Hard to guess what they are... could be a couple of bulldogs... but think I might reserve judgement till I see flowers or at minimum spike/s

    Good luck and hope they flower soon.

    Cheers

    Ok, first off, beautiful healthy plants! I am gonna guess a specific plant so I can really be wrong or if I get lucky, folks will think I am amazing or something...lol Ok here goes:

    (primulinum alba x haynaldiannum alba) better known as Paph. Henrietta Fujiwara

    The reason for this guess is the leaves. We have a couple of these here and the foliage (which I know doesn't really mean anything) looks very much like the ones in Steve's pic.

    Ok, feel free to tell me I have no idea what the heck I am talking about...I can take it.

    Cheers!
