Well, I have not posted anything for a while, but my plants have been busy. I got a crop of paphs currently in bloom. So enjoy the show and maybe you guys can try to guess their name, the rules are similar to our previous, trademark Paph IQ games of the Forum. Some are really easy but some are not quite ... So the blooms will remain nameless for a while ...
More paphs in bloom ...
Certainly, the paph show can go on for a while longer ...
This one could be easy but could be hard to guess what it is ...
Last of the batch or maybe not, there are a few other paphs in buds but that could take months before they open. This particular one could be the prettiest of the bunch ...
Beautiful paph show!
I love the first one. I think it is Lynleigh Koopowitz (delenatii x malipoense)
The second one is Paph druryi
The third one is Paph niveum
The fourth one is Paph bellatulum
The fifth one is Paph honey (philippinense x primulinum), but I'm not sure. It is a cochlosepalum cross
I'm less confident with the multiflorals because I don't know them well. I think I see a philippinense. I see a paph kolopakingii and it's the alba one I think. is there a Paph Susan Booth? and Paph Prince Edward of York is the last group?
Okie... I'll guess them all too!
1. Paph. Lynleigh Koopowitz (no, I didn't copy! )
2. Paph. druyii
3. Paph. niveum
4. Paph. bellatulum
5. Dunno, something with Cochlopetalum influence
6. Paph. praestans (with VERY nice form!)
7. Paph. kolopakingii x Paph. randsii (I've got this stinky in bloom too!)
8. Looks like Paph. praestans with maybe Paph. roebelenii?
9. Same as 8
10.-12. Looks like Paph. St. Swithin
this one's tougher, I'll go with moquettianum x lowii
what the RHS calls glanduliferum
randsii x phil
the next two I will guess Edna Ratcliffe
the last set looks like Swithin
I love the kolo x randsii, Hoa! Mine is healthy but not interested in blooming. What does yours smell like?
Are the Paphs after that either Booth's Sand Lady or Isabel Booth?
They're all stunning! What a great Paph show!
Beautiful!! It must just be heaven in your GH, Hoa. What a wonder collection of blooming slippers.
