    Default Paphinia Majestic

    Not the best photos ... took them through the glass of the terrarium. A primary hybrid of Paphinia cristata X Paphinia herrerae.








    No scent that I've ever noticed. Like other members of the Stanhopea alliance, flowers are short lived typically lasting a week (a little more if you're REALLY lucky).

    Good luck with the crossing, Zain. Wouldn't think it would be too difficult.

    I tried cristata once but lost it. (Actually prefer cristata, truth be told. I like the coloration better and the smaller size.) Don't know if Majestic's doing better for me is just a case of hybrid vigor or just luck. Wouldn't mind trying cristata once again but haven't seen it at any of the shows since way back when I bought that first one.
