    Default PaphIn Shape 'Silas' x Paph Stone Lovely 'Lehua Butterpuff

    This is my first try to post!!! This is my current favorite paph and wanted to share it to see what the "experts" think of it. The tag says "In Shape 'Silas' Stone Lovely 'Lehua Butterpuff'
    The bloom is fully open now and is a little over 6 inches across! I love the colors and the shape.

    I think it is lovely! I think your tag indicates that it is an unnamed cross between those two orchids: In Shape 'Silas' x Stone Lovely 'Lehua Butterpuff', I am not familiar with the first, but i have seen Stone Lovely make some really big, pretty plants. I think you have yourself a keeper--congrats!
