    Default A Mish-Mosh of pictures from the fair #1

    They were a couple of really stunning ones that I did not get good shots of, sorry. I include one really poor shot of a really striking vini paph for those who like them. It was amazingly dark. Also in that photo is Norito Hasegawa, the breeder.

    You're back!!! Where's Hoa? I have a rather burning question, that I suspect you could answer, but that he should...

    Where's Hoa!!!

    In the meantime, You don't, perchance, remember the name of that stunning vini, do you? It looks to have some Coryo in it, since we're all hip to Coryo now... and I'm guessing maybe wilhelminae? Jason, feel free to slap me around if I'm saying stupid things again!

    oh my.... what a beauty to wake up to!

    I want... no, NEED! that Paph!

    (Julie, I would probably say, more like Paph anitum in parentage)

    Very funny...

    I looked it up myself. Adductum. How does antium differ from adductum?

    well, the splitters say that the colour is much much much.. much darker... also, the size of the plants are remarkably different. Paph anitum grows much bigger to Paph adductum... from the ones I've seen, it's about double the size!

    not sure about any other features which are different flower wise and as for origin habitats, well they both come from the Philippines and I'm not altogether sure whether that habitat overlaps...

    Cool - dark and bigger. Sounds like a keeper!

    Well, after recovering from all the excitement and etc...
    Well, I did manage to acquire a paph anitum plant from a Taiwanese vendor who came here for the first time! Hehehhehe!!! I did not get the name of that dark vivni. I hope you know that vini is not exactly my cup of tea for the paphs. But it is really dark.
