    Default Paph. henryanum

    Drats! After buying a Paph. Deception II niveum 'Snowball' HCC/AOS x delenatii 'Angel' in Dec '04, I snapped the bud off just before it bloomed in March '05. Then I fert burned the leaves to the extent that I wondered if the plant would survive. Noted to self that Parvis and Brachys don't care for salts!

    It put up a spike last month, and I thought I'd finally get to see it! I should have been suspicious that it wouldn't last long. The spike grew fairly quickly. Then it took nearly two weeks to fully open. I thought I'd have it around for at least a month or two.

    Today it was browning rapidly. The poor flower is spent after so short a bloom for a Paph! Maybe it hasn't yet forgiven me for past abuse. Its pristine white with faint spotting and blushes of pink, is pristine no more!

    So I bet you're wondering why this thread is entitled Paph. henryanum...well, I haven't gotten to the planned photo shoot in the kitchen, because my counters are covered with about 60 pots of seedlings. No room to hang the black velvet! So when I gasped at my poor fading Deception II, I ran around and snapped in situ in my apartement, anyway photos of some of the more recent bloomers. Lest they fade before I reclaim the kitchen for cooking and photography.

    Henryanum is one of them. A species discovered in China in 1987, and later found in bordering Vietnam, it's named after its discoverer, the famous or infamous orchid collector, Henry Azadehdel.

    Paph. henryanum is one flower that always delights me. Such a nice picture! This one will have to go on my wish list.

    As for the Deception--just doesn't seem fair after your long wait. Maybe next time....

    What a beautiful paph! Looks like she's about to do a Cabaret number.

    Alas, maybe Deception was named appropriately for this go around. Hopefully she rewards you gloriously next time.

    Hi Qing,

    Here's the whole plant: it has three good sized growths and a fourth one is just starting.

    The flower is pretty big, which is nice for a first bloom seedling.
