    Default Paph Souix x gratrixianum

    I bought this in bud because the cross sounded so interesting. I was wondering how much of the specie would come through. You can see it in the shape of the bloom.

    Yes, I have a ton in bloom and 6 paphs and 5 phals just about to open - while I'm gone. Course, I just hope they survive, who care about flowers! And my Bob Betts (my avatar, is in low bud - drying out will definitely kill the buds) But, on the other had, the phals should be fine.

    I really like the shape of this guy. Makes him stand out from the other complex paphs!

    Yes, a true standout. He will open up more too? It looks as if he is just opening from the angle of the dorsal sepal.

    No, that's what really makes him unique. The hooded effect of the dorsal. A character - like moi...

    ...She stands out in a crowd, all right!

    You're right, Diane - it's like bulldog x gratixianum. You can see both clearly, yet it's a handsome combination. Nice one! Is it relatively new for you?
