    Default Puppydog Psychopsis

    I just love the way psychopsis look as they open... this is psychopsis Mariposa. Bloom size is about 2/3 of my Kahili Big which is also in bloom right now.

    I have a pretty good sized Mariposa that hasn't done anything. I'm not sure what it's waiting for. It was funny...I thought I was buying a papilo. That's what the grower thought too. And even after repotting it, I hadn't realized the mistake. But papilo was the only visible part of the tag. When I pulled it out and looked at it, it read: papilo x Kalihi, which is Mariposa.

    Cool pic, Diane!

    I love the progression photos too. I did a series when I first got my Mendenhall and it opened for the first time.

    Heh. When I first spotted your thread title, I thought it said "puppy dog psychosis". And that's something I can definitely identify with! LOL
