    Default Paph rothschildianum (Rex x MM)

    Things have been hectic and I didn't get a pic of all three flowers in bloom. I got this one today of the last flower but it is about to fade and the dorsal is no longer flat. The second flower had a flat and larger dorsal. Of the three flowers the second flower had a 10 inch petal span. This one has a 9.5" span. Looks like I will have a second chance of getting a spike shot for I just discovered that another growth is now in low spike.







    I decided to fertilize the flower and being I am into roth primaries, I wanted a cross that I didn't have. There was not much blooming in species so I choose Paph bullenianum var tortipetalum.

    very nice! hopefully the cross will be much easier-blooming than crosses with more mainstream 'Maudiae-type' hybrids (i.e. W.R. Lee, Roth-Maud, etc).
