Apr. 4, 2014: One of the regular things that Larry and I do is browse thru the orchids that are available on eBay. It’s fascinating to see the different kinds of plants from different parts of the world. And to see how much some of these plants are fetching. We finally balked and picked up a few. They arrived throughout the week and so far, so good. True test would be to bloom these and prove that they are indeed the plants that they were sold as. Time will tell!
Paph. sukhakulii plant we got for cheap. Label says “Paphiopetalum sukhakulii”. I hope that’s not a new genera shuffle thing.
Paph. sukhakulii flower (picture from Internet). Wanted this plant since I had a lot of discussions with my twin brother Toad about the significance of this species and the hybridization of maudiae-type Paphs. Beautiful flower!
