    Very nicely photographed! I love the ones w/ one last bud opening - makes the composition very interesting to me. I went to a show in April, and wrote this one down on my wishlist -but the petals were definitely longer, so I must have read the label wrong. I wonder what it was I really put on that list! Oh well...I do like the creamy pouch on this one!

    Thanks very much, everyone! I really appreciate all the kind words! Heather, the creamy almond pouch is my favorite part about this flower too!

    wow, I love this pic, thanks for posting it orchid_fan... I've just ordered a Paph Honey and apparently it should arrive Friday... aaargh... why does it take so long...
    Heather - the longer petalled flower you saw may still be a Paph Honey, depending on which philippinense they used, ie var philippinense or roebelenii, the latter has a longer petal which is more 'curly'/twisted.

    Hi Louis,

    Cheers, thanks mate. I've had a look at a couple of orchid forums and after joining a few of them have decided that this place seems to be the most welcoming, less stuffy as the others... unfortunate that I don't live in the US so I can't win prizes heheheh, but there are some great ideas coming out esp this Semi-hydro which I am going to try on a couple of plants to start with. Hopefully, I can also pass on some info on things happening on this side of the world.

    Regards,
    Tim
