    Grand Chamion - Paph Pacific Glen x Loganna


    Reserve Champion - Paph (Golden Days x Magic Mood) "Lime Sundae"


    And my fave Paph at the show.. well one of my faves

    Well I had a really tight budget this time round so I bought five seedlings

    Amesiella philippinensis - my first one expired when it got to close to the stove whilst i was cooking.
    Paph Honey (alba?) - apparently used the alba parents so fingers crossed
    Paph praestans - kinda rare here still so looking forward to it
    Paph Red Shift - wanted a dark maudiae, has lots of red on the 'stalk'
    Paph urbanianum - just coz it's from the philippines

    And I was under the budget woo hoo...

    Course I so wanted to buy a flowering size Paph parishii that was at auction and went for a piddly $35 and a Phrag bessae that didn't sell for $50 bucks... people here can be really weird and crazy... anyhoo...

    Cheers

    Well, it looks like I got a dog of a praestans... I wake up this morning and there is a big brown spot on the topmost leaf... two days.. I have never killed anything this quickly!!! Sprinkled some cinnamon on it but I don't think it will pull through...

    It just had Paph praestans on the label Jason, so not sure...

    As for the parishii, it sure was a strange auction... a couple of FCC awarded flowering plants were selling for around 35-50 bucks... if I didn't have the car rego and insurance coming up, I think I would have come home with about 100 more plants!!! The most expensive plant was a Bulbo echinolabium, five fat bulbs with one spike $105.

    Anyways, maybe next time... oh and I've set up a quick sight for the rest of the flowering plants at the show HERE

    Cheers
