    Default Poor dead Paph.

    Not really It is .. Paph. Gold Creek X primulinum flavum 'gold finch'
    I got this 2 years ago at an orchid club meeting in Mo. An older man not in good health brought it as a gift for the dirty Santa drawing . I got it ,the person said (loud enough he might of heard her ),oh it is sick ,half dead ,she had drawn a Mueller hybrid and didn't like it either, one I had bought for the drawing , it was a beauty . This one is going to show and tell If still in bloom .. Thanks for looking .. Gin

    It would be nice if the older gent and the rather rude woman are still around so they could see that it thrived and bloomed well.

    She didn't like the Mueller cross either? What was she hoping for?
