    lol @ McJ and Doc... I'm still a philippinense fan... I now have about 15 different clones and can you believe only one in bud!!

    hope it's ok, but I thought I'd do up a new thread to show this plant in it's glory... except I dropped it today whilst taking the photos and had to repot it... hope the shock doesn't kill it!

    Howard... my favourite orchids are the Paphs and in particular is the species Paph philippinense... to the point where I have a fair amount of my collection being various clones of that species or hybrids directly derived from it.

    with this current plant being shown, there isn't any philippinense in it at all, but as Hoa said, it's a PEOY.. so yes, I couldn't resist not having at least one.

    ps. my avatar is actually a composite of my headshot and a paph philippinense created by one of our members Lynda (Mehera), who by the way also makes amazing cards and those big scarves....
