    It is cute. I think it is more yellow/green than Paph. Honey, isn't it? Well grown in any case.

    Cheers,

    That's lovely Gin.

    It's really nice to see pictures of other people's plants, when you have the same hybrid, and to look at the differences. The pouch on mine is much pinker with very twisty sepals.

    Thanks for sharing yours with us.

    Sweet, Gin! You have a talent for reviving the weary orchid it seems. Maybe I should send mine to your house for 'treatment'!

    Very nice! Mine is currently in bloom too, mine has a bit darker shading, and a lot more spotting on the top sepal and petals, and my petals look a little droopier and twisty. But yours looks more refined, and better form to my eyes.

    Where will the birds go? How many are we speaking of? And for how long? Do they like road trips, or are they pretty impervious?

    Gin, how big is your bird house? I think I have only ever seen one that was big enough to house a whole bunch of canaries.

    Have you posted pictures before on the forum of it?
