    Default For the Paph-heads....

    Here are two paphs that I just love. The first because it is a multi-florial and the second because she is just so cute and tiny. They are: Paph. Mount Toro (stonei x phillippinense) & Paph. niveum 'Snow Ball' HCC/AOS x Paph. delenatii 'Angel' (sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy)

    Cheers!

    Wow that's fun, I just posted a picture of Mt. Toro as well - it's one of my favourite multi-florals as well.

    I love the other that you posted as well...the white paphs are always so cool.

    Your Mt. Toro is BEAUTIFUL! Congratulations on the award, Eve! We have two in bloom right now and I just love them! I really needed to stake them up so they blooms would hang correctly, but waited too long.

    Cheers!

    I love them both, too BD - guess that makes me a Paph-head!

    I have the same niveum x delenati (what a surprise...I bought it from you!) That's the one I decapitated last spring. I broke the bud off the spike just before it opened. It still hasn't forgiven me, but maybe next year...

    Julie, you are an ORCHID HEAD...I don't think it really matters what type either! You seem to love them all. ME TOO! [maybe we shoudl get t-shirts... ]Maybe your niveum/delenati will surprise you later this year! I hope so! The cute bugger just grows soooooo slow.

    Cheers!

    We should definitely get RV forum apparel. It seems many of us are already planning to attend the WOC in South Beach in 2008. We definitely need to plot out some extra curricular activities! We can wear our t-shirts, orchid undies, and whatever else (rollerblades and thongs) there!

    Wow! wOW! WoW! wOw! wow! WOW!

    I love Mt Toro! It has the beautiful dorsal markings of stonei and the lovely petals of philippinense.

    And who can go past a cute flower like that... it has taken a lot of characteristics from the niveum, yes?

    As for WOC 2008, I am already saving a dollar every day for it, so hope to see y'all there
