    Default Paph. Prince Edward of York photos

    So I was strolling through Parkside Nursery during their post NY-show sale a few months ago, and upon heading into the paph house I saw a bench full of huge PEOYs. One of them had a sale tag that read $60, which of course I knew had to be a mistake...until I saw 3 more that were tagged. Turns out they had way too many and wanted to move some...I helped them move out one!

    cross is rothschildianum 'Rex' x sanderianum 'Deep Pockets' (one of the original orchid zone crosses).

    at the risk of boring those yet afflicted with the paph addiction, a few links to more pics.

    additional pics

    and my previous PEOY, from a lesser cross, that bloomed last year:

    other PEOY

    Thanks Heather! When I was going through Parkside's plants, pinching leaf bases like a true paphnut, this one seemed promising. I mean, they were *all* ready to bloom, but this one had a headstart.

    Re: your PEOY, with roots like that, 7 years will probably not be necessary! They really like it warm, bright, & humid, and like the rest of the multiflorals tend to grow in spurts. A few good growing seasons and you might be pleasantly surprised!

    Jason you really got very lucky with that PEOY cross! At $60, that is a steal! Beautiful cross and the petals look very long! Excellent!

    WOW!!! Great pinching Jason! That is a beauty!! Hey are any of your fishing buddys into orchids like you? I am sure you could get them addicted.

    I use to fish quite a bit with hubby...we did a lot of night fishing and use to catch boat loads of trout,stripes and crappie. Seems like a lot of trouble now.

    He stilll goes and got into limb line fishing for big flathead catfish...that is an interesting way to catch fish....well, this is an orchid forum,so I better hush about fishing.

    Thanks, Pete. Petals a little over 14". I wish I had more money, because I would have bought them all at Parkside!

    Gilda, I'm still looking for some real fishing buddies (hard to find people interested in the outdoors in the city), but fishing and orchids do seem to be two very different things. It's funny you mention flatheads--I just picked up a stout catfish rod that I'm going to use for saltwater!
