    Absolutely Beautiful! Wish so much that I could have attended -- perhaps the next one. Thanks you for sharing this with us.

    Move over V. Gordon Dillon, This will be the top of my wish-list. Wow! Amazing. Paphs crossed between multi and parvis are my favorites.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with Teena - words aren't adequate for this incredible creature. What an amazing color!!!!!! Will we ever be able to get our hands on one of these?

    Default Paph Du Motier 20th WOC - Reserve Grand Champion.

    Just returned from the WOC and saw this photo on your forum.
    The sad sequel to this is that the flower of the Reserve Champion was stolen during the Conference. (compare the two photos!.)

    I presume it was taken to get the pollen for breeding purposes.

    I am sure that the awarded plants will not be so readily accessible to the public at the next WOC!

    How horribly greedy people can be.

    On an up note - welcome, John, to our forum. Glad you decided to join us.
