    Default paph colorkulii x fairrieanum

    This is paph colorkulii x fairrieanum. Colorkulii is sukhakulii x concolor. The flash kind of washes it out, but the column is a beautiful peach color. I also love the way the flower inherited sukhakulii's distinctive pouch shape.

    Very nice! I can see the fairrieanum in the shape of the ventral sepal. Is this its first bloom? I wonder if it gets more saturated in color as the bloom ages? Thanks for posting!

    Cheers!

    This is the plants first bloom. It has been open for about a week now and the color hasn't changed any.

    Mmm, that is pretty! While I am not a huge fan of concolor or fairrieanum, I do like sukhakulii and this combo is really pretty!

    *O/T* Hey Bru - nice Thoreau quote - you know I work where several of his good friends had their commune? He never visited, as he thought people "communed" better by themselves! LOL!

    Default Great Plant!!!

    You have a very nice plant here! How large is the plant? I can just imagine a specimen-sized plant with 4 or 5 blooms on it!
    Good growing!

    The plant has the one mature blooming growth plus two starts that are well on their way to blooming size and one tiny start. I'm very pleased with this boom as it is about four inches in width.

    If you any of you guys are looking for a hard to find paph I know a guy in Florida that goes around to all of the local growers and sends out an email every couple of weeks. He specializes in paphs, catts and bulbos. Also, if you desire a particular plant he will find it for you. His email is thanhnguyen79@earthlink.net
    I don't want to sound like I'm advertising, but he has gotten me some nice specimen size plants and hard to find hybrids.

    very interesting cross. I love how concolor really contributes that "warm earthy" tone to its progeny. Aside from excellent foliage too.

    I love digging up archives like they are dinosaurs, as much as i love the pictures! this one is so pastel, and the colours blend very nicely.
