    Default Paph IQ Test

    Ok, this is going to be easy for the regular Paph heads, so let's open it up to others. Hoa, Diane, Tim, Jason, and Heather can't guess. (Although I do expect the requisite ooo's and aaah's from you all!) Others, please feel free give it a try!

    This is a first bloom for me, and there are two more buds to go (one beginning to open.) It's a primary hybrid, which means both parents are species. And for a big fat hint, the pink pouch comes from both parents...

    Feel free to ask any questions you'd like.

    That is a cutie!!!!! Are you working on photography skills so you can give your orchids the old Hollywood glamorous look? And we are the unsuspected audience?
    We are not allowed to participate? Hic hic !!! But are we allowed to pitch in and help out the with our witty and smart-alec and possibly over-size serving of fat hints??? Hehehhehe!!!

    It is! But I love its color - some are so washed out. I'm happy with this pink puppy!

    I'll give it a newbie try. Does it have paph.henryanum or paph.delenati in it?

    Being brave here, so don't laugh!

    Ok, anyone who wants to, give it a try and have some fun...

    Here are a couple of Web sites where you can look at species Paph photos. That definitely helps! Ask any questions you want in this thread, but if you want to guess the identity of our girlie pink Paph, private message me, so the others still have a chance to work it out for themselves.

    http://ladyslipper.com/ppfiles.htm

    and

    http://www.orchidspecies.com/indexp-pf.htm

    Note that this hybrid is multi-floral. Only several sub-genera of Paphs produce more than one flower, which means at least one parent was of the sub-genera of: Corypetalum, Pardalopetalum, or Cochlopetalum.

    With these two links and our big, fat hints, even my mother (if interested) could work this out, or get close. So...enjoy!

    Ok, new guess...almost a confident guess - paph. liemianum is one of the parents.

    If it's not, it was at the party.

    Sarah didn't do too shabby in her first guess, eh?
    Cheers. Hoa.
