This is a discussion on Paph Pulsar x Paph Ruby Leopard 'Flame' within the Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium, Cypripedium IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; That's quite the artificial orchid, on steroids none the less! Thanks for finding it, it ...
That's quite the artificial orchid, on steroids none the less! Thanks for finding it, it is quite funny!
nice "peacock" paph. I have one that looks almost exactly like it. and that second photo, if I had to guess, might be the modern day offspring of H.G. Wells' "man-eating" orchid.
the flowering of the strange orchid
Cool story, Jason. Never read that one.
I kinda liked Phal Lowii reference too (!!)
What season of Alias are you talking bout. We are only on the forth over here. They showed the episode where she gets bitten on the neck and then starts halucinating and nearly kills her father. Finally, they get back to Rimbaldi! Sadly i must have missed the oncidium episode. I love Alias. Something has to be real big for me to miss it.
Ha ha at the photo. They must be keeping it in a lab where they constantly do experiments with X Rays or something to achieve that sort of mutation.
Did anyone look at the leaves? They're as dark as hell and seem to be growing in a rossette! Definately not even related to a paph (from what little i know)
(lots of giggles in the background)
PS: Maybe they should use phragenstein next time
The Oncidium episode was season two. We are in season four, but there must be a delay in showing them down under.
Nice 'maudiae-type' there. Lovely dorsal. I can never tell if it's a coloratum or flame or the other stuff...
As for the Paph 'Alias Fake-arooni' - I don't like it! It seems like it's trying to reach out and.. and who knows, maybe suck the blood out of one's life... (yes, loved the story Jason, couldn't put it down).
Great story, Jason! The Alias orchid has all the makings of the H.G. Wells 'chid!
Louis, I think you need to start offering some.
