    Very beautiful! Definitely one of my favorite paph species although I have many!
    A good thing also happened (or at least I hope it is) to my Paph lowii at the last orchid society meeting! Norito Hasegawa, one of the premier paph hybridizers here in the US saw my Paph lowii, thought it was very beautiful and asked for the pollen so he could use it to make a hybrid that he had in mind! What do you guys think? What should I ask from him in return?

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Tell him one seedling for each of your friends!!!

    So Norito is in your society. Pretty high class company! I have a Winston Churchill from him. Top of the line!

    Before I gave him the pollen, I made him promise to tell me what he is going to do with it and tell me if anything ever comes out of it. He said yes and might let me name the cross if successful. Of course, seedlings for friends are almost certain if we get seed pod!!! Hehhehe!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.
