    This one is Susan Booth x haynaldianum ;Susan Booth is rothg' x glanduliferum - a much darker flower . Natural spread here is 9 inches.
    The cross was registered as recently as 1995 by F.Booth. According to gossip, the cross had not actually been flowered, maybe not even made at the time of registration- but I have no evidence about that. Certainly the Registrar's practice in demanding to see a photo of the flower before allowing registration started soon afterwards, said to have been because of complaints about this.
    My plant comes from a mini flask I raised at the beginning of this century ; I have seen flowers before , my best being four on a spike - to get six will require a strong mature probably multi-growth plant, but my paphs have been suffering over the past years with changes of home, and changes of growing technique as I have tried to adapt to changed locations etc. Maybe they are settling down now ( doubtful ! ) since I made another change last year in moving them all into S/H in Hydroleca.

    Beautiful. Orchids do teach us about patience. It's well worth the wait.

    Beautiful. Four blooms on a spike is really great growing. I hope you get the six you hope for! This one is stunning.

    cheers,

    The smaller seedlings in 2 inch pots have not done well. The bigger ones aredoing well, I think.
