    Very nice there, Diane!

    Gee, you must be in a paph buying spree a while back. Forty paphs, huh??? My goodness! I bet it's not the real number .... Where do they live? Ahh, a better question, where do you live now? Hope it's not the car like our very own McJulietheSoontobePublishedAuthor? Hehheeeee ...

    Default NEW BLOOMS

    These are the paphs that had opened while I was gone, there is another one that will open in the next day or so, and at least 3 more in bud, plus 5 still open that were previsously posted. Ahhhh Paph heaven.

    Included are 2 new crosses, including the double bloom complex paph, and a well known species! (I promise to get the names up soon)

    wow, Wow, WOW!!!

    That first complex is super!!! Surprisingly, your venustum is one of the few I've really really liked!

    What a party all your orchids are having!

    ooo that pouch of the Paph. venustem is eye-catching! I like its leaves too, it looks like snake skin.

    That's may favorite, especially since it has variegated leaves. Would you like me to try and start one for you? I do that from leaves all the time. It takes a few months to get going, but it's fun to raise them up from babies...

    Yes, it's a really cool plant year round. Takes them forever to get big enough to bloom. I picked this guy based on it's parents, who had lots of red in the petals. Too many of them are kind of washed out looking.
