    Default Paphiopedilum moquettianum

    should really be called "coquette-ianum"

    oh, is this still considered a progress pic? I didn't want to start any earlier for fear of blasting the flower...



    cheers

    right so, I was gonna post update shots etc etc... anyways, the day after the first shot, I took out my black fabric, got the wood backing and set it all up in the patio.

    next step is to place Coquette in her spot... and voila... lookin good!

    but of course, I had to be a klutz!!! i knocked the wooden backing and it of course starts to fall onto Coquette and.. well... ok, so I saved her... sorta...

    the flower was bending down, the petals was all over the place... and well after that I just couldn't take another photo until this morning...

    and here she is:-

    didn't particularly like the photo I took after the 'accident' so I have taken another one...



    I do love this plant... subtle in it's beauty!
