    Nice deep colors. Love the pale green around the lip of the pouch.

    Hi Germinatorman, that one had just opened. I think it will turn to a pale yellow in a couple of days.

    Love it! Really love these and am getting drawn to paphs and phrags more and more. Could easily get hooked on focusing on them. Yours is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks . I was mainly Cattleya before for a long time. Now, I'm really digging the Paphs. I started switching to paphs because of the space and light requirement.

    I have two different examples of this , both have petals which are much straighter - less droopy - and less twisted too ; also more yellow, with a pink flushed pouch , and finally the pouch is much more compact and close up to the rostellum , so my first reaction was to wonder if this was a true example. But after loooking at the illustrations in the invaluable Orchidwiz, I see that there is more variation than I had thought and all of these "differences" are shown in one or other of the Orchidwiz illustrations.
    So a more variable hybrid than I had realised.
    Where I live, these big multi-florals take more than a year, sometimes several years for a new growth to reach flowering size.. My oldest plant eventually filled a 12 inch pot and at its best had two flowering spikes one year, and enough growths at different stages that I saw flowers every year. But I broke it up ( mistake ! ) and I have maybe four pots of it , and no flowers for a couple of years now. One day !
