Pretty picture: Paphiopedilum (Mod Maude x Shin-Yi Pie) x Hsinying Rubyweb

It's nice when the dark blooms aren't so dark as to be completely devoid of color, I guess.


Paphiopedilum Mod Maude = Paphiopedilum Maudiae x Paphiopedilum Red Maude (Ref.)

Paphiopedilum Shin-Yi Pie = Paphiopedilum Raisin Pie x Paphiopedilum Magic Flame (Ref.)

Paphiopedilum Hsinying Rubyweb = Paphiopedilum Hsinying Web x Paphiopedilum Ruby Leopard (Ref.)

Somewhat related, from 2008: my own personal Paphiopedilum Supersuk 'Eureka' x Paph. Raisin Pie 'Hsinying' x Sib, which lived here for about three and a half years, and has now been dead for four years. (It is predicted to remain dead for the foreseeable future.)

And from 2009: Paphiopedilum Maudiae Alba NOID.

I love the look of Paphiopedilum. But space in my house is limited and I won't spare any window spots for a plant that looks boring for most of the time, I wish I had a nice greenhouse to grow orchids in.

On a positive note the Schlumbergera I got from you have both produced buds this fall! Stoked gave me a couple of blooms, Cyborg Unicorn lost her first bud but she's growing a couple more. Fingers crossed!
