    Default worth another look

    This paph, or rather these paphs are ones we have grown from flask. I posted one bloom awhile back and Diane posted one she got when visiting us in 2005. I was watering this morning and thought folks might appreciate a group shot. Anyway, here are a few of our blooming:

    Paph. (gratrixiannum 'Candor' CHMAMAOS x henryanum 'BK's Little Gem' AMAOS) 'River Valley Orchidworks'

    That one in the back seems to have inherited more of the henryanum - in the pouch especially. All the other are amazingly consistent!

    They're gorgeous!!! The pink on the pouch really stand out! Nice to see small plants too, great for those tiny grow spaces!

    They are all equally lovely and I enjoy the graceful shape. Good growing and hybridizing, Bruce!

    Bruce- those are just amazing. I'm never been a big paph grower but examples like this, wow, they make me think twice. Were these an easy grow or are they finicky?
