    Default doin' the roth dance

    This my Paph rothschildianum 'Rex' x 'Mont Millais' I am normally not one to take spike pics to post but I am really excited about this one. The spike must have grown 3 inches this week.

    In the pic you took, Ron, the spike looks like an unusual bromeliad

    Congrats, that's fantastic! In this instance a dance is very appropriate for a rothaholic

    I hope that one days I would be doing roth summersaults.

    yes, it was my first and only roth I bloomed to date. in actuality just average for the cross, but nice color and decent form. slow growing so I won't see its potential until (if?) I get a greenhouse, but I think the new growth is on pace to bloom in 2010? lol.

    if you feel like making a cross, I have a well-colored wilhelminiae and an average but vigorous philippinense in bloom...and some long-petalled phrag pollen in the fridge if you want to try for the elusive phragmipaphium, lol!
