    Default Its a NOID but at least I got one

    After several years, this monster finally bloomed. Its been so long I have forgotten how the flowers look like.


    This one I got it from a nursery in China, a left over from their previous spring flower exhibition. Also a NOID .

    NOID or no, they're lovely! Some NOIDs are so wonderful that it almost doesn't matter that we don't know their names. These are two!

    Nice paphs and I think you can figure out the name for the second NOID.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Lovely! The first one looks to have some Winston Churchill 'Indomitable' in it's background, but then, that has been used to breed an awful lot of bulldog paphs.

    The second, well I'm no wiz kid at naming orchids by sight, but it does look very sukhakulii- like to me. (did I spell that right???)

    Oh...maybe a suk! I was thinking a wardii on the second one. There are so many gazillions of hybrids, though. Hoa, what seems so obvious to you?

    WOW WOW WOW!!!! They are both amazing and definite keepers even without names!

    The second doesn't look like a straight out suk... the petal colour on the ends as well as the fatter pouch means something else has been added.. what... I don't know...

    The first one.. I am sure I have seen it before.... have you posted this on the forum before Tanya? The other thing is I keep thinking it should have a frog in it, which makes me wonder if Gilda has posted one with a frog inside.. hmm...

    but as I said, they are definite keepers!

    Well, it does look bit and pieces like wardii and sukhakulii although not exactly. I think it is a cross with at least one of these two species in the background. Other species that we could consider as one of the contributors is Paph. acmodontum or Paph. argus. Paph. wardii and sukhakulii don't appear to have pink coloration on the tip of the petals and maybe too dark to look like the picture while Paph. acmodontum and argus do but the black warts from these guys are not quite the same as those in the picture.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I think I took the pic of the second paph too soon. As the flower aged, it developed a soft pink blush on its dorsal sepal. I was also thinking Supersuk of something. But just like you all said, who cares about their names, I'm terrible about remembering names anyway.

    Thanks all.

    I like the second one, nice and crisp. I'm leaning heavily towards acmodontum x sukhakulii (registered as Paph Love Song). The pink has to come from acmodontum or appletonianum, but if it were appletonianum you'd expect wavy petals. also both acmo and suk have outstretched petals, whereas wardii is almost always downturned. both acmo and suk also have smallish striped dorsals.
