    Default Paph IQ Test - Feb 4

    For today's challenge, we have another primary hybrid, but I want to stipulate new rules for this one. I'd love to see some of the less experienced Paph folks try their hand at guessing. I think both parents show up well in this bloom, and it shouldn't be too hard.

    So please PM me questions as well as guesses. Based on the questions I get, I'll post hints as necessary. PoP and Doc Spock, you guys can be pretty shameless about big fat hints. Please refrain. I'm the only legal hinter on this one.

    Well, Gin was right on one of the parents. Come on, guys! Lynda, Katie...anyone else who loves a Paph and wants to play a bit...

    The second parent can be misleading, if you judge by the horizontal petal stance - that comes from the venustum. That's a pretty big fat hint for Paph fans! But the petal shape, coloration, hairs, warts, and dorsal are all influenced by the second parent!
