    Default vinicolor paph fairrieanum hybrid photo

    Watering plants and realized I neglected to post pics of this one, Paph. (Hsinying Cherry x fairrieanum). As with any vini, it's an "either you like it or you don't" flower. Nonstandard vini breeding lines such as this one utilize various other species to give distinctive flavors to the typical vini shape.

    The use of Paph. sukhakulii first resulted in Makuli, and then gave rise to the heavily awarded Macabre, a good dark example of which remains one of my favorite paphs, bar none. A host of fairrieanum hybrids exist, all of which look pretty much the same, and charlesworthii has been thrown into the mix as well. These two have flower shapes that are very reminiscent of the nonstandard parent, but with much darker flowers. Other parents have included hirsutissimum, henryanum, and the appletonianum/hainanense complex. Some of the most stunningly-colored paphs arise from the mating of brachy x vini. Many of these are severely crippled, but a good dark one is the darkest red/maroon, and causes the serious paphnut to drop his jaw and salivate like Pavlov's dogs.

    Jason, that's cool.

    I might be a little biased though, because that's the cross we got an HCC on at a recent show!

    I do like those Hsinying Cherries. Very glossy! Thanks for the history lesson too - I am working at learning all that so it is much appreciated, Jason!

    We named it Wossner Uberfairry 'Red as Hell'

    (Ok, not really.)

    Actually, I wrote Ching Hua Orchids to see if they'd let us name the grex and haven't heard back yet, so if they don't reply here soon, (and it seems like it still hasn't been registered), we'll get to come up with some kind of decent grex name. But we gave ours the clonal epithet 'Baybay'.

    (Don't ask why. It seemed appropriate at the time.)

    They gave it 77 points, and I think I posted a pic of it here somewhere, a few pages back.

    Heather, there's very little funny about that franz glanz guy registering some really gorgeous paph primary hybrids with useless, self-promoting, and totally uncreative appellations. It's a travesty, a sham, a mockery, it's a travashamockery...
