    Default Paph delenatii x micranthum

    I can't believe that this cross has not been registered . but that is what Orchidwiz says. Correction - mea culpa - I looked up paph delenatii x Cyp micranthum... whoever would have thought that the same speciic name could be used for members of allied genera ? You woild ? Oh - it's just silly old me then... exit left bowing deeply....

    Whats to say about it ? Not a perfect bloom - I'll blame the weather - far too much sun this year !
    Hang around and it may do better next year.

    It is still a lovely slipper orchid even with a bit of heat damage.

    cheers,

    Such a beauty - it looks like it's standing up on its tip toes saying, "Here I am! Over here! Look at me!" I love the bright yellow and red contrasting with the pink.

    Paph Magic Lantern (micranthum x delenatii), registered 1994. Nearly 90 awards and registered as a parent at least 17 times. One of my favorites.

    Default The mistake was mine, not Orchidwiz...

    In my original post, I said - I can't believe that this cross has not been registered . but that is what Orchidwiz says.

    I have now amended that posting to say - Correction - mea culpa - I looked up paph delenatii x Cyp micranthum ( instrad of paph delanatii x paph micranthum ) ... whoever would have thought that the same speciic name could be used for members of allied genera ? You would ? Oh - it's just silly old me then... exit left - covered in confusion, bowing deeply....

    Default Paph-to-be

    How inspiring! I have a tiny paph delenatii as part of my foray into species, and have seen the catalog photos, but nothing truly credible. I know this is a x, but it strongly resembles what a pure delenatii is supposed to look like, doesn't it? I keep forgetting I even have this little guy - he's so low-profile next to the Hsinying and the Burgundy noid - maybe now I'll pay a little more attention!

    You will enjoy this orchid so much when it blooms for you, Maura. Congratulations and good luck with it. I look forward to next year and seeing this one in bloom for you.

    cheers,
