A.k.a. Paph. appletonianum var. hainanensis, depending on which taxonomists you listen to.
Pulling out the black velvet was worth it for these pictures.
Wow, no kidding. I love the shape of the pouch, especially.Originally Posted by Sue
I should have mentioned; also from Windy Hill. There's a second bud on the way.
very nice! among the best foliage in the genus too...
Not surprised at all it's from there; Marilyn pretty much specializes in phrags and paphs, and she's the originator of some pretty amazing phrag hybrids: warscewiczianum x caudatum, wallisii x caudatum to name a couple; I think those are Majestic Tresses and Tall Tails, but I may have that backwards. She and Tom Larkin at Whippoorwill have worked quite a bit together too over the years--both of them amazing growers I totally respect and admire. Not to sound like a commercial, but anything you get from either of them is going to be top-notch.
Do you find hainanensis easy to grow? I have a couple seedlings and I hope the color of the 'wing tips' is as bright as yours!
Beautiful colors - nice plant!
Oh – forgot to mention that this is another one I just bought at the show this last weekend. So I don't know crap about growing it except what I read at Jay's encyclopedia.Originally Posted by Slipperhead
