    Default Paph Bel Royal

    Well the first flower has been open for a few days & the dorsal has been very obliging & decided to go upright .
    This is a EYOF plant using paph roth "Mont Millias" in the cross.
    Very happy to see it bloom as i killed a similar much larger plant(erwina) , this is a single growth division(2 new starts) & has a 30" LS.

    Look at the size of that beast! Excellent shape and color! Roths 'MM' is amazing!

    Really nice blooms, Steve - are you pleased? By the way, what's an 'EYOF plant?'

    is it too ignorant to ask if it is a species/hybrid/complex?

    It's a beautiful hybrid!! Mine has a second growth that looks mature to me, but it hasn't spiked...

    Yours is stunning, Steve!

    Do a google on it , very interesting.
    The EYOF registered Paph Bel Royal in 1996.

    Damn! I though EYOF was in Jersey as in New Jersey!

    Do they sell plants there as well? Or did you smuggle a division out in your pocket? That really is a beauty!

    There's no ignorant question around here, P1! We all learn from each other.

    Steve's plant is a primary hybrid cross between two species: Paph rothschildianum x Paph kolopakingii. Two of the largest and most impressive of the Coryopedilum Paphs. So it looks like a species, even though it's a hybrid.

    The roths cultivar 'Mont Milais' produces some of the darkest coloration in roths. And the dorsal and synsepal, together with the pouch are much wider than you'll see in roths of lesser breeding, let alone a roths hybrid. That really carries through in Steves blooms.

    The Bel Royals I've seen look scrawny compared to this guy!

    Not directly as far as i know but i do know another specialist Paph nursery who asks EYOF for me
    I have a rather nice paph Prince Edward of York from EYOF(2 large growth) which has paph roth"MM" in the mix but they do not come cheap !!!!!! but the quality is normally amongst the best.I do have some Phrags from them as well .

    What a wonderful resource, Steve! I'd suggest that whatever they cost - almost - they're worth it!

    This is an amazing bloom!

    Have you considered getting it judged?
