    Default Paphs in Bloom March 2009

    well, a couple of the Paphs from February are still in bloom, namely

    Paph helenae 'Diane'
    Paph dianthum 'Diane-thum'
    Paph niveum

    and now for the newbies:-

    Paph unknown - this was sold to me many years ago as Paph Honey which it obviously isn't (back then I didn't realise that the leaves were a good indication of what type of Paph it is). It looks like a cross between Paph insigne and a barbata species, e.g Ashburtoniae.. but as it is it will have to forever be known as an 'unknown'



    Paph Honey - the real deal. smaller than the other Honey's I have, but a cutie none-the-less.



    Paph Red Magic - you can really see the species parent in this... who's gonna have a guess?



    and for the non-paph inclusion of the month

    Lc Tropical Pointer 'Cheetah' - can't take credit for this blooming as I bought it this way



    cheers
    tim

    Beautiful all! I love the Tropical Pointer too. As for a guess in the Paph Red Magic, from the look of the dorsal, I would guess fairrieanum (sp?) but since you have an affinity for philippinense can I guess twice?? Now I am going to cheat and look it up in Orchidwiz. heheh...

    Cheers,

    lol, orchidwiz is such a neat software... i'm amazed at how much info is in there.

    isn't that tropical pointer the best... it's actually a peace offer to Steve seeing as I bought about ten other plants

    Paph Red Magic- i agree about fairrieanum, maybe a bit of sukhakuli in the spots ?

    all are great, but that catt is really really nice, I am partial to spotties!

    So that's the elusive Honey I was sold. You're right, buy a honey I did not. I love the striping on it's sepals. The way the tiny synsepalum blends in the background of the flower is too cute! And, I might add, Love the pic on it's technical merit: even in this low resolution I can still make out the sepals' hairs.
    Good show!
