    Default Maudiae 'Los Osos' AM/AOS x Hisying Web

    Hi,
    This is my first paph bloom and my first time posting. Maudiae 'Los Osos AM/AOS x Red Pepper has been in bloom for two months and still going! I can't believe how long it is lasting.

    Sorry my camera doesn't take very detailed close-up photos so I had to reduce the size of the pic.
    As the flower is blooming, one side of the dorsal sepal continued to grow and now the dorsal sepal is not symmetrical right now. Is this genetic or was it a malfunction? The sepal was symmetrical when I photographed it
    Lol, I got my first paph and suddenly now I have 24 slippers already. My Paph Vanda M. Pearman is having trouble blooming. It is a very large sized growth and it keeps sending out small leaves rather than a bud. Any suggestions?
    :-) my phrag ecua-bess is now in spike, I'm so excited.

    Thank-you :-) It was a internet ordered plant. I was actually expecting a lighter sepal because of the paph Red Pepper, but the vendor sent me a deep coloured plant. I still love it though:-) I got the name wrong by accident. It is a Maudiae 'Los Osos AM/AOS x Red Pepper rather than Maudiae 'Los Osos AM/AOS x Hisinying Web.

    That's a wonderful dorsal sepal! And I think you did a great enough job with the photo to 'hide' the assymetrical dorsal... coz I can't tell

    Welcome to the forum too! And I too am a Paph Nut, so lots of photos of Paphs and Phrags and any other slippers are very welcome!

    cheers

    Default Beautiful!

    The depth of color on the dorsal sepal and lip is amazing! ive been trying to find pics of the bloom of my los osos cross, but have had no luck. nice to see great blooms on another los osos cross.

    My maudiae los osos x cyberspace netscape is in the process of opening up right now. had a lot of growth today, and the lip is particularly active in growth.

    here's a 'before' picture -
