    Thanks!

    I don't know if it is registered. The tag doesn't say "AOS" or anything like that on it. I'm happy just to have one with a tag. LOL

I fertilize with "Dyna-Grow Orchid Pro" fertilizer. 7-8-6. I would like to fertilize my orchids every couple of weeks, but I'm lazy and they rarely get it once a month. Probably every month and a half. I put half a capful of that fertilizer in a gallon of water. My water is well water.
    I have a layer of sphagnum moss on top of the potting mix too. Forgot to include that.

    I like this one too.

    Paph. Michael Koopowitz (Paph. philippinense x Paph. sanderianum) was registered in 1993 and there has been at least 61 awards for this cross.

    Paphiopedilums are not normally cloned, so this one is probably a one off.

    I had Michael Koopowitz in the back of my mind - just couldn't put my hands on it. The grex is called Michael Koopowitz after one of the offspring of Harold Koopowitz, who was a partner and great hybridizer, along with Norito Hasegawa, at one of the biggest hybridizing nurseries (mostly Paphs and Phrags) until relatively recently, when he went off on his own to write books and follow his own line of breeding "teacup" Paphs. Another famous hybrid from them is Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz, which is Paph, delenatii x Paph. malipoense. It's a beautiful cross.
    I don't believe the that they have yet learned to clone any paphs successfully, so your plant has potential for awards, and you'd get to pick the clonal name!

    I agree with Maura - this Paph Michael Koopowitz is simply GORGEOUS.

    Cloning can and be done with certain degrees of success, but why bother when the price of Paph flasks for primary hybrids are what they are. They usually produce similar expected results also. If there was a particular clone that was of interest, then it might be considered. But alas that is the appeal of Paphs isn't it.

    that is stunning! i don't mean to sound rude at all, but i'd like to suggest a good glamour shot of this one. plain black background, just the plant and submit it somewhere. that is an orchid that should be in a book.
