    Default A paph to the dark side.

    I've just brought home my first paphs.
    I'll let you guys venture a guess first as to what they are.
    I'm sure this is the point of no return.
    Thanks for looking.

    Very hairy guy (pic 1).

    I like the dark pink in the pouch (pic 3) and the mottled leaves (pic 4).
    It also looks like the second spike is not too too far away.

    Congrats on your first paphs, excellent choices.

    Nice pink one those buds. It is definitely of cochlo influence. I am going to guess Paph Gina Short (Pinocchio x delenatii)

    I don't know what the maudiae type is, but for sure it has sukhakulii in it.

    The last one is also cochlo influence. I am going to say Paph Honey (primulinum x philippinese), .

    The delenatii part is right; it's a primary hybrid; only recently legal (in Canada at least).

    2nd
    Surely the Maudiae side is right; only 12.5% sukhakulii in total though.
    It's a Paph Minnie May x Maudiae 'Clair de Lune'
    62% Maudiae
    25% venustum
    12.5% sukhakulii

    3rd
    It's not a Honey, but it has plain leaves though. Also a primary hybrid; both parents start with a 'g'.
