    Default Paph. Heron's Faire

    Hi there -

    This is Paph. Heron's Faire - a fairreanum-influenced Maudiae. I like it, but it still seems awkward to me - parentage is White Heron 'Giant' x fairreanum fma album 'Lime White'. It has a Paph. Makulii grandparent that makes me think its proportions will sort themselves out. The greens and whites are very crisply patterned.

    I think it's great! You chose a lovely planter/pot for the photo, Maura.

    Very nice crispness to its lines/pattern. Very nice job on that first pic, Maura!
