    Default A little comparison

    Here are some pictures of my "cousins" Both blooming very well at this time.


    The large one is Paph Oberhausen's Diament (prim x sand) and the smaller one is Paph Honey (prim x phil)

    I find the differences and similarities fascinating. Especially the very faint pink on the Honey versus the deep pink on the Diament..

    oh I love that Honey!!! I know, I've probably said it a hundred million times...

    what I love about it is the full shape of the dorsal and the colour on the petals...

    of course, Diamant is also very lovely...

    oh... you have such beautiful plants Diane!

    Sand really shows in the Diament: particularly the pouch shape and color. Great comparison, Diane! And lovely o'chids!
