    Cool Paph Temptation

    Picked this up yesterday at lunch.

    Paph Temptation (phillippinense fma alba x kolopakingii)

    Multi bloom spike from phillippinese. I am not familiar with Kolopaking. But alba is not a dominate feature of this flower.

    I just looked up paph Kolopakingii and see that it is both very similar in look as well as a multiple bloom spike. It seems the phillippinense alba has little influence.

    Wow..nice one to pickup during lunch.!!. looks like the restaurant owners know your taste very well and they seem to be stocking up orchids instead of eatables... lol

    Harvey, this looks very similar to the one that won the orchid show recently. The blooms looks huge - five of them?

    Very nice buy. I'm still trying to decide whether this primary hybrid is an improvement on either parent but I would still buy one if I had the opportunity.
