    Default Paph Salty Val

    This beauty starts out pale green with white edges, then fades to white with a pink blush. The bloom is slightly malformed because it got too dry when I was on one of my trips. But still, I love white paphs!!

    Nice One Diane! I have a Paph. Salty 'val' HCC x Winston Churchill 'Red" getting ready to open, I will post a pic once it is full. I have not seen a pic, just pics of the parents. I expect that it will look like yours, with red spotting. I sure hope so - what a nice orchid you will have to display for Thanksgiving and the holidays! Meg

    It does have a very distinct pink flush to it.
