A couple of paphs for your viewing.

bob8_gwNovember 10, 2008

Here are two of the many paphs. that are starting to bloom in the green house. First is Paph. bellatulum that was breed by Orchid Inn. It was made using 'Yellow Bird' x 'Yellow Sunset'. I had so hoped that it would have passed on the light yellow to it's offspring. It bloomed last year and I didn't even post it as I was so disappointed that it did not come out yellow. Here is a photo of it's second blooming.

Next is one of the whites that are now blooming. As you can see it is a clone of Dottie McDowell. I purchased this plant in Jan. in bloom from Hadley Cash of Marriott Orchids at the World Orchid Conference.

Your orchids are beautiful, Bob! I am particularly interested in the Belaturum. It is lovely in its own right, but I can understand how disappointed you must have been when it didn't show the yellow you had hoped for.

I love your paph. bellatulum. It has been on my wish list for some time. Strangely enough I have only seen pic's that do not show the yellow you speak of. I think its gorgeous!! If you don't like it I'll be happy to take it off your hands...LOL :o)
