    That is one honey of a Paph!!! I really love it's colour and the way the petals are held.

    So what could it be...

    I'm leaning more towards this because Paph Maudiae 'Napa Valley' is a known green and white whereas Paph Supersuk 'Eureka' is a coloured clone.

    so that long name... let's see if we can make sense of it -

    Paph. ((Makull-curtisll)-Maudlae) x Paph.Maudlae'Napa Valley' HCC/AOS x Sib
    = ((Makuli x curtisii) x Maudiae) x Paph Maudiae 'Napa Valley' HCC/AOS x sib ... note that curtisii is known as Paph superbiens when being registered
    = Paph ((Mem Allegria Gutierrez) x Maudiae) x Paph Maudiae 'Napa Valley' HCC/AOS x sib
    = Paph Janet Kunkle x Paph Maudiae 'Napa Valley' x sib
    = Paph Hsinyng Majakun... note that crossing Paph Maudiae x sib still gives Paph Maudiae.. and then crossing that to a Janet Kunkle will be Hsinying Majakun. Alternatively, Paph Janey Kunkle x Maudiae = Paph Hsinying Majakun and the sib cross of that would still be Paph Hsinying Majakun!

    So the long name is Paph Hsinying Majakun!

    Note of caution... make sure that before you put a tag on this beauty that those two are the only possible tags...

    and now, an apology for all that nerdiness about the name... i just got orchidwiz and i'm loving playing around with it!

    No apology needed.I'm not going to be showing any of my plants.They are for my enjoyment.Thank you for taking the time to look up all of the names.That is very interesting ! I need to learn more about what all of these names and letters mean.Maybe someday it will make sense.At about that time the names of the genus or species will change. lol Thanks,Rich

    Congratulations, Rich! It was fun following your paph awakening. Love those greenies; she looks like a granny smith apple.
