    Default Paph Supersuk x Raisin Pie Hsinying and Gorgeous Paph NOID - HELP!

    I wanted to share two of my new really fun acquisitions - the first is the Supersuk/Raisin Pie cross, but it's the second one I really think is neat - and of course - noid. From the species hybrids and cultivars I've researched, though, this one seems unusual enough to MAYBE id. It's such a deep burgundy that it's almost black - green mottled leaves, slightly maroon underneath. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks -

    Maura

    THANK YOU!!!! I use a Nikon D80 with 18-105 lens and 3.5-5.6f - I play with the manual settings alot and I'm getting a little more adept at iPhoto - but my main goal is always to represent the plant as accurately as possible. I actually do paint, and I use many of these photos as guidelines, so it's strangely apt you should pick up on that. I really do wish I could do justice to the burgundy, though after taking about 50 shots of it, I'm a little fatigued.....

    Both of these hybrid slipper orchids are beautiful. I wonder if you will ever get a true identification on that second one though. These paphs have been mixed and re-mixed over and over.

    cheers,

    I know, Bruce - but hope springs eternal, doesn't it? Thanks, by the way - I'm really learning to appreciate paphs. On Sunday, my husband and I went to a Bonsai workshop at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens (he's the bonsai fanatic and I'm going to try my hand at bonsaiing a gardenia), but we went to the orchid conservatory afterwards and there were some AMAZING plants - I'll post a few - the paphs, angraecums, and cattleyas were especially magnificent.
