    Default It's Not Easy Being Green

    Hi Folks,

    seeing there is a thread on dark maudiae-type Paphs, I thought I'd start one on the green and whites...

    so I am pleased to introduce to you:-

    Paph Onyx '#4' - (the whole plant)


    and a close up of the flower...


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

    cheers
    tim

    Paphs don't really like me--so I am very content to admire your green beauties from afar.

    very nice crisp green! I'll add the famous cultivars Clair de Lune 'Edgard Van Belle' AM/AOS and Maudiae 'The Queen' AM/AOS. and a philippinense fma. album to boot.

    Ha! Jason, your Maudiae 'The Queen' was what got me hooked on these green and whites... I hope you don't mind but I've got that pic saved on my computer in the hope of one day getting it printed on a shirt that i can walk around in
