    Alberto,
    Gorgeous!!! Thanks for posting it.

    Paphman,
    Oh dear ... so many roths! That is an obsession! You know they will get really big at some point. A prominent member of our orchid society display one of his first bloom roths once. I have never seen a paph that big (eventhough it is only a single growth), a spike that tall and paph flowers that big and majestic! I have been thinking about it ever since ...

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Excellent idea, Philippe!

    A Paph chess set! Actually, a Coryo chess set!!!

    Roths are king, as sands must undeniably be queen. Stonei for rooks the name says it all! Kolos are solid - definitely knights. Adductums strike me as bishop material something calculating and conniving there...

    That leaves pawns. While they're smaller, I'd hardly consider philippinenses expendable. But if we made them pawns, Tim-O, think how many there'd be on each chess set!

    Ok merchandising wizards...the obsessed await!

    Luftwaffe Julie?? Guess your AGE is showing... *tee hee*

    I suggest the Philippine or Malaysian Air Force. ('cept I don't know if they have air forces....)

    Beautiful picture of the lowii, philippe

    Naw...ignoring Diane's attempt to turn the tables on the "wrinkled" hijaack...it's the book I just finished - the setting was Nazi Germany during the war.

    Besides, Luftwaffe is fun to say! And was one of the relatively few respected/feared air forces in history.

    Hello Hoa:
    My roth are indeed getting really huge. My 3 year old roth range from 12-24 inches in leafspan. My other roth seedlings are 9-12 leafspan only after 1.5 out of flask. I also have roth that are 9 months out of flask and they are about 4 inch leafspan. My 3 year old large roth that are 24 inch leafspan will be repotted into 5 inch pot and I think the will flower in the next 2-3 years from now. They are faster grower than I expected. My big roth have leaves that are about 18 inches across and a leafspan of 36 inches across in a 10 inch pot with 6 growths. It will flower next year because I see flower shealths from both growth. Hopefully both flower spike will bloom at the same time.

    Congrats, Paphman on your roths! It looks like you are doing very well with them! I don't have that many but the ones I have are getting huge! Personally I like them even when not in bloom. Just by looking at these vigorous plants give me lot of satisfaction!


    And Julie,
    A paph chess set, huh? Great idea! I am all for it. Roth for king, sander for queen ... But how about stonei as queen? All the white on the dorsal is so icy, and regal, like an icy queen ... lowii as pawn is simply fitting, not phil please ...

    Cheers. Hoa.
