    Great blooms. My Bel Royal has not put out a spike this year.

    excellent blooms on that bel royal---I've never seen one like that. from a distance though it looks almost like St. Swithin in terms of dorsal shape and petal markings...

    Glad that you all like the new pictures!

    Hi Jason,

    Yeah, this plant 's flowers look peculiar but you could tell that the petals have yellow coloration and straight line markings, similar to other Bel Royal. These features originate from Paph. kolopakingii, I think. The petals from certain Paph. kolopakingii plants are also quite long and a bit twisty as well. So I think this plant has stronger contribution from kolopakingii genetics than other plants of the cross. Whatever that is, I really really like this plant. If I see the vendor again, I will try to remember to ask for the clonal name of the parents that he used.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Paph. appletonianum

    I haven't posted anything on this thread for a while, eh?
    Well, more paphs are coming to bloom and I think, we might be in for a little treat!
    Graceful paph species! My neighbor really likes this one. He borrowed it for weeks just to photograph the bloom.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Paph. lowii

    I am surprised that my paph lowii is still in bloom after so many months! It is one of my favorite paph species now!
    I have posted a picture of this paph in Julie's lowii thread. In this one, we see the progress pictures of the bloom! Droopy petals and all like a 'sad' puppy when it just opened (picture 1), almost perked up two days later (picture 2) and the bloom matured into a very good form within a week (picture 3, taken many weeks later)!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Paph. armeniacum

    Beautiful yellow parvi paph! The bloom also lasts like forever too. Very slow growing but looking at their beautiful leaves at times is quite enough to put up with it!
    Cheers. Hoa.
