    Default Paph Honey

    Here is another first time bloomer which I purchased in 2005 as a single growth plant... as you can see it does grow fairly quickly, and I'm glad it waited till it was stronger to bloom... looks like I'll get a partly sequential blooming.

    Paph Honey - the whole plant



    and a close up of the flower -



    now, here's the interesting part.... the particular cross of this plant is
    Paph primulinum x Paph philippinense fma alba!

    Now many of you would know that Paph primulinum is a green flower and Paph philippinense alba is a white and green flower, so this cross goes to show that the albinistic genes are definitely recessive!

    well, thanks for looking.

    cheers
    P.o.P.

    A great job, Tim. It does seem to show some of the alba traits, as it is definitely more green and less pink than the Paph Honey that I have.
