    Default Paph. Satchel Paige 'Brennan's Orchids'

    instant gratification and a little nicked up from shipping.



    Registered in 1995, Paph. Satchel Paige is a unique hybrid that combines the richly-colored Paph. wardii with the famous vinicolor grex Vintner's Treasure. With a multitude of disparate species in its immediate background, it is no wonder that Satchel Paige is a highly variable grex, both in terms of flower shape and color. It can produce some truly dark vinicolor cultivars, some of which have already been used quite successfully in subsequent generations of vinicolor breeding. This particular cultivar, 'Brennan's Orchids', is heavily dominated by the wardii parent, and was awarded an HCC/AOS in 1997.

    I like the rust overtones to the color.

    Nothing can beat an instant gratification, especially if it is an orchid! (No need to wait 5 years!)
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Hmmm...silver eel...is that conger eel? Makes sense...I don't think you can get those silvery cutlassfish (= beltfish) around here....I'm also getting lots of bluefish...mostly small, but a few up to 3#s...not bad from a tidal creek on light tackle....Take care, Eric
