    Default The Never-Ending Quest for a Good Vinicolor Paph.

    This is a fairly ordinary, unregistered cross along the lines of a vinicolor Maudiae Paph. (Paph. Hilo Ruby 'XXL' x Paph. Hsinying Glory #2). It's a very young plant with a tall, spindly stem, which I'm not going to post. The bloom next time should be larger, but the shape is pretty good and the side petals are quite dark - tarry, even, which made it hard to photograph. I've tried both dark and light backgrounds and think I prefer the darker, but I can't really decide.

    Anyway, here it is:

    Nice colored vinicolor, Maura. I do have to look for some of these vinicolors. Definitely the background in the second picture is perfect. The background in the first picture is too stark and the poor paph looks so forlorn. Of this is just my opinion .

    Very good clone Maura ! The almost black lateral and the nice dark, wine dorsal are simply outstanding !

    Very pretty! The red color seems to stand out more with the black background.
