    Default decent pic of Paphiliopedlium Pinnochio

    Hey all, months ago I posted some pics I had taken of my Paph Pinnochio. Those blooms were in development when I bought it at a nearby conservatory. We are 7 blooms in now on the ever-blooming wonder, and I wanted to share a decent pic of the guy. Its been tough for me to get a photo that shows the color well...

    The Pinnochio is a very nice multi-floral hybrid- a cross between Paph glaucophyllum and Paph primulinum. With proper care it just blooms and blooms, a new slipper opening days before the old one falls off the spike. (And with me, it might not even be proper/good care :-D, so I assume you greenhouse people would do wonders with it....)

    Thanks Bruce.... I sat down and took pics a few times and really did struggle getting a good one. Everything turned up faded/washed out with the soft pinks of these blooms....

    Thumbs up

    Thanks Bruce, but to give credit where credit is due, I got the idea from a pic I saw of one of your HCC awarded Paphs...

    ....made me realize its tough to get a better backdrop or light than outside on a clear sunny day.
