    Paph. Via Quatal 'Coral Queen' x Pulsar 'Fang Pacific' HCC/AOS

    After a number of vinis, I got this one which turned out to be a "peacock" type. Large dorsal but not quite as richly-colored as your average full vinicolor.

    Great Bloom. Looks almost edible, like some fancy dessert.

    What an awesome dorsal... so the "peacock" type is because of all the dots on the green petals?

    yeah basically..."peacock" types have a lot of green in the petals and sometimes the dorsals too, with tons of spots/warts. still vinis, though, with dark dorsals and dark leaf bases.

    That's funny, I envisioned the peacock part being the big, round dorsal, like a fanned out tail.

    Either way, it's a great vini, Jason!

    hmmm...interesting that you guys thought of the dorsal. (but all the standard maudiae-types have that big dorsal on top!) I suppose maybe the warts are supposed to reflect the "eyes" on the feathers, and perhaps the green/red/white etc represents the multiple colors...but the "peacock" designation is a loose one at best that some genius dubbed these types. maybe "raisin pie" would be a more fitting designation...which is actually the name of a hybrid grex with a large sukhakulii influence, and of course the requisite warts (raisins).

    still looking for a classic "flame" type in my collection...

    LOL - My Raisin Pie hybrid should be Raisinless Pie. I think I have 3 raisins!
