    Hi, ya'll,
    Gee, am I the only one abssessed with Star Wars here? Just kidding! I have seen these movies including original series and the prequels like hundreds of times! We see these fantastic costumes and all those outrageous headpieces that Queen Amidala wore, in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

    Hi Jason,
    Well, I don't want to breed a phragenstein! Hehehhe! And I will pass on the vini. I have a few vini and that is quite enough for me. I prefer the multiflorals, hmm I should add the parvi and the brachy... Hehehhe! But the St. Within sounds good. Do you think it will be a good one?

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Go for pure philippinense, Hoa! I just happen to have one about to bloom!

    That would cool with those gorgeous long petals!

    Besides, Colin's just waiting for me to do that thing with my finger again.

    I think you can't go wrong putting any coryo on Paul Parks. If you had access to one of the dark new roths, that would be dynamite. The SS I have is pretty well-colored and has good size (7" petals), so the progeny I would venture to guess might resemble a considerably smaller but perhaps darker MK/PEOY. The philippinense part of the SS might inject some vigor as well. I also have pollen from a well-colored and large-flowered Bel Royal if you're interested--probably would look similar but you might get larger plants.

    putting a pure philippinense onto the Paul Parks would have nice dark petals, and a smaller-profile, more "graceful" flower, in my opinion.

    You guys' thoughts all sound good to me. I have the latest roths (Sam x Rex and Rex x Mt Millais) but they are not going to bloom for a few years! Urghhh!!! Unless I pick up the phone and call Sam Tsui. But that would be too much. But I will keep this option in mind for the future. However, I might be able to use the pollens from this one with a PEOY.
    So what a guy in my situation would do? Can't set two pods on this plant (but that is the best scenario), it could be detrimental to its health.
    Why don't we do this: since Julie just got a healthy multigrowths philippinense (from Diane, I bet, no wonder she has been giggling ...), why don't you set pod on your plant using the pollens from my plant? With this, you got the chance to play with your finger again ... Hehehhhehe!
    And I will set pod on my plant using the pollens from Jason's St. Witihin plant.
    How does that sound?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Sounds good to me - while you people do all the work, I'll be off buying a Paul Parks...

    Ok,

    Had a little sex this morning. Hoa, what's the daddy's full name? It's always nice to tell the children who their father was. I'll try and snap some pics of my philippinense this afternoon, before the flower fades (wishful thinking on my part!)

    Aaron, we'll have a Paph. pod coming so to speak this winter, with any luck!

    Well, daddy does not have a full name yet. I still call daddy Paph. Paul Parks. Or you could think of a full name for daddy for me especially that you are a fiction writer!!! Hehehhehe! That would be fun!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.
