    Default Paph Lemon Hart x (Betty Bracey x Jolly Green Gem) Paph complex hybrid

    This is the first to flower from a flask which I transferred to compots in December 2008 ; I reckin that 26 months is pretty good going for any orchid from ex-flask to flower ( in my own experience) and for paphs it is remarkable. Obviously its a very vigorous plant. There were about 20-25 seedlings in the flask, and there are another 10 or so which could flower next year. I actually had half a dozen different flasks - it was my Xmas present from my dearly beloved - and upwards of a a hundred plants are now on the bench in the greenhouse, with a smaller number still in the dew-point cabinet where I grow my ex-flask plants.

    BTW it is in a two and a half inch square pot, which will give an idea of the size of the plant , and the flower is 11cm - just over 4 inches - natural spread..

    The cross is Paph Lemon Hart x (Betty Bracey x Jolly Green Gem) which I would guess includes blood lines from three different Paph breeders of the past.
