    Very cool Gilda - thanks for posting!

    They're a bit less French poodley twisted as my hirsuitissum ended up, but they're certainly in the family! A nice hybrid!

    Thanks Jason....where on Earth do people come up with these names??? Although " Hairy Hooker" has a more interesting ring to it!

    I know I would have trouble passing on a Paph named 'hirsute hooker'. By the way, I guess I should let everybody know I'm in the market for a Paph. Thunderous Burp.

    Thanks for the second pic! It's cool to see how it changed.

    It's one of my goals in the future to remake the 1960s grex Lc. Jack Off.

    For those who aren't familiar with the deplorable (in my not so humble opinion) practice of naming *primary hybrids* after yourself or your organization, the "wossner" refers to some german guy naming paphs and phrags left and right, combining the names of the parents without any imagination. wossner koloniv for example. bleah. proprietary breedling lines? name them after yourself by all means. primary hybrids? shameless.

    So...following Jason's advice if we were to cross Paph. Hairy Hooker x Paph. Thunderous Burp, we'd end up with:

    Paph. Thunderdous Hooker (a bit scary)
    Paph. Hairy Burp (something my cat does)
    Paph. Burping Hooker, or
    Paph. Thunderous Hair (as in, a bad hair day)

    Ok, Garland - we're relying on you to pollinate this one! Let us know which name you choose.

    Julie

    PS - Tim, you're twisted.

    So the curling is from the hirsutissimum parents?
    I'm envious: beautiful blooms, and slight changes from day to day.
    Thank you for posting the flower update.
