    I don't see it but I believe you! So, the blue background and the natural lighting causes that reddish effect. Thanks!

    Here is the final pic of my Paph dianthum in full bloom! All the buds are now fully opened. Heather, you should get one of each, I know you love the dianthum and the parishii.

    Oh good! Saw you posting... I think you are right that it looks darker, the redish/blueish parts....
    Hey, maybe? Now that I am saving so much on water...
    LOL!

    Yes, with the money you're saving, I'm sure you can get a dianthum AND a parishii!!! It's a good thing they are not as slow growing as the sands!

    These now I would say could definitely be called "mahogany" - forgot to answer your question earlier, Pete. Sort of a rich brownish/purplish red (like the wood itself.) To me of course...I can understand that color being used to describe the pouch, particularly as the blooms have aged.

    Ok, got it! So, mahogany (bluish to me) it is, then! I love the blooms and the blooms are actually quite large in person.

    Heather, the dianthum blooms look darker to my eyes, now. Can you tell the difference? To me, the blooms have deepened in color. They usually lighten as they age but this time they have actually darkened. Something to do with the lighting condition the plants are in, I think. Remember the few days of dark clouds and lots of rain and very little sun we had recently?

    Hmm, Peter, I think maybe you are right. It is a little hard for me to tell, but I went back through all *4* pages of iterations and some of the earlier ones look a bit lighter than this one. Yes you've had a lot of dark days up there lately (now I've got them...it isn't even raining! At least if it is grey it should be raining, IMO!)

    Did you notice the large staminodes are inverted heart shaped? I think that is very neat and pretty!

    Yes, that *is* pretty cool! Almost like a mirror image. Sweet!
