    Default Paph. insigne Show

    Hello again to all. The first one photographs is Paph. insigne. To 50 Km of Barcelona a city exists that is called Arenys de Mar and in December the first one has been celebrated 1er Paphiopedilum insigne Show organized by our association ACAO Associació Catalana d' Amics de les Orquídies. This city is for but of 100 years a place privileged for the insigne. All in their garden they have Paph.insigne as plant of outside. I have seen in a same one garden but of 600 plants of insigne. .... truly that is to see it. .... favulous. With relation to my lowii, I believe that is the type, but as authorization with label of var.sumatra, asi I have left the equal.
    The first photo is a sample of the plants met of some of our associates and of people anonims of this city. The second photo is a private patio of that city. The third photo is a disfuncion that have observed two times in a single flower of my Paph. philippinense.
    Cordial greetings.
    Pere

    PLEASE send one of the pots of insigne to me!!!!! What INCREDIBLE specimen plants. I'm assuming they are expecting to fill ALL of those clay pots with overflowing paphs very soon!

    Those are spectacular photos, Pere! Thanks so much for sharing them. They make my little single growth plants seem so humble...(which they are till they spike!)

    WOW!! Paph grown outdoors as garden plants. Dream come true for a paphfanatic? Imagine if you can grow the Philippinense like the way they grow the Insigne. That would be AWESOME.

    That's a very interesting abnormality in your philippinense. Do you have a picture of it from the front? It must be quite striking.

    I wonder how much sense our comments make to you once they've been through Babelfish. Perhaps I should phrase my comments in less ambiguous terms; the phrase "It must be quite striking" might be translated as something like "It has to very hurt," whereas I mean to say something more like "I expect it to look very unusual and beautiful." On the other hand, this paragraph is likely to make very little sense at all, so I suppose I should simply apologize for the confusion. If this comment didn't make any sense, please don't worry about it.

    Anyhow, thanks for the pictures Pere!

    Pere, I have neer seen anything like that. I can't believe those plants are in such excellent condition, being grown outdoors all year! Thanks for posting those pictures.

    And yes, if you can, definitely put up a photo of the philippinense from the front!

    Hi, Louis, I have sought in my alone and hard disk I have found a photo with Paph. philippinense forward. The photo does not show the complete flower but can give an idea. It is the lower flower that alone the half is seen.
    Again I ask excuses by write not in english. If my translator does not translate well. .... SORRY. I read well your messages in english

    Bye

    Pere

    That philippinense is gorgeous! But, I wonder if it is possible to breed into Paphs the split synsepal so that all the flowers are like that... I think it looks quite nice...

    and Pere,

    The translator is dong a pretty good job... the meaning of what you are saying comes through.

    cheers
