    Default Multifloral paph hybrid

    I can't take credit for this one, as I bought it just today. But, it winked at me, and I had a gift certificate in my wallet...so....

    Paph Luna Light Glow 'Clearessence' x Paph philippense alba 'Heart Break'. Sorry the lighting isn't great, I was too lazy to set things up well. Nevertheless, I like it!

    Like it? You should love it! Kathi, I never thought of you being guilty of orchid abuse. By not loving this one is the ultimate form of abuse and now I must hunt you down and rescue this poor unloved beauty! LOL Just kidding. It really is a beauty and what a nice gift to give yourself. Love any paph that has Luna in it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful new addition. You are building quite a collection.

    Beautiful. Love the strong influence of philippinense in this hybrid. How many flowers on the spike ?

    Thanks, all.
    Bill, you are right...I tend to understate a bit, but I DO love it.
    Yew...it has 1 flower open, and a second bud on the spike. It looks like there was a third that did not make it. Maybe next time!
