    looks like you're gonna have a few more flowers there Joe!

    i really like what the fairrieanum brings to the flower on your cross 'Frank'. The hybrid cross between Maudiae and fairrieanum was registered with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in 1909 and is known as Paphiopedilum Faire-Maud.

    You an add your own clonal epithet to it, so that on your tags you can put say -

    Paph Faire-Maud 'Frnkblck'

    so, how bout adding to this and turning it into a mega-thread of albinistic Paphs.

    cheers

    Hallo, here some pictures of mine "Green & White" I found on an flowershow in Holland.
    Regretfully there was no name attached to the plant.
    Could anyone help me with that?
    Should it be a hybrid, I am also interested in the parents' names.

    Hi Shantyman... that is an awesome complex Paph!!! The dorsal sepal is just so beautifully filled out.

    name... hmm... again, unfortunately these orchids have been hybridised so much that many of them do look similar... just to name a few Paph Betty Bracy, Paph Yerba Buena, Paph Hamana Great, Paph Sunline, etc etc...

    sorry to be no help, but if i can say again, i wouldn't be chucking this one out! It's a realy beauty!

    Your greenpaph is gorgeous Shantyman. Unfortunately we cannot ID this one with certainty as Tim mentioned.
    It is very similar to my Paph Mukoyama Green though : http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...ama-green.html

    since we're still going with this one, I'll drop a pic of a venustum fma. measuresianum (the correct name for this species' albinistic form)

    really quite an interesting flower this venustum... that brain pouch is such an overwhelming characteristic.
