    Default Mr Microwave, 2nd bloom

    This bloom is on a different growth. It is multifloral, but I think its a bit over-bred... The other bud is from a different plant behind it.

    Err...yeah...the one behind looks much more interesting!

    It's hard when these slow blooming Paphs weird out on you. After all that invested love and care - how dare they!

    Safe journeys, Diane! Take my number. If the candy man gives you a hard - or good - time, call and disclose all! I need good dirt to make Ophra!

    I don't know what the cross is, other than one parent is a multi-floral. I bought it as a "lost tag" plant. It does look similar to a Honey, but less vivid markings....
