    Very lovely Howard. Warts and all. I usually kill my Paphs. but this year I have a Paph Saiun in bud. I'm excited because this will be my first earned bloom on any Paph. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I, too, love the warty Paphs! And this one has lots of sukhakulii influence in it. Sukhakulii just might be my favourite species of Paph. Anyhow, I love this flower!

    Rich, this isn't Double Deception--it's Double Deception crossed with Macabra Pie--so you have the parent Grex of this one.

    Cheers,

    Rob
