    Default Paph. Dellaina

    Based on the other pics I've seen, many in the grex look too much like sad puppies for my taste. I like this one quite a bit though – the parvi-style lip is to my eye much nicer in this grex than those that have more cochlo-like lips, and the petals don't droop too terribly much. I do wish the dorsal was a little wider at the base, so there was less 'windowing'

    Anyhow, I'm thinking of pollinating this with my Henrietta Fujiwara. Any advice on that front is welcome.

    Natural Spread: 9.0cm
    Nat_Spr_vert: 9.0
    Petal_wide: 2.8
    Petal_long: 6.0
    Ds_wide: 3.3
    Ds_long: 4.5
    Pouch_wide: 3.1
    Pouch_long: 4.0

    2 flowers and 2 buds on two stems.

    The light is a little weird in these photos, due to the window screen, and the color is a just a little washed out.

    That's a neat idea for a cross, Sue. I have an HF currently in bloom, if you're looking for pollen.

    Thanks Julie, but I've got one in bloom too. Otherwise the cross probably wouldn't have occurred to me.

    I think the reason I like both this one and the HF so much is that the Cochlopetalum shape and color isn't so dominant as it often is in Cochlo hybrids. I like Cochlos, but a lot of the intersectional cochlo hybrids look kinda the same as one another.

    So which would you use for the pod?

    I know I'd go for the HF, hoping to get a tall spike of sequential blooms, but that might be too much cochlo for you...

    Soft pink color, drooping petals, what's not to like?
    Cheers. Hoa.
