Sep. 25, 2015: As the day of the Taylor Orchids fall sale draws near, Larry has been giving Ron a hand at getting things all straightened out. One perk of helping out is having the opportunity to pre-shop before the sale.

(picture from Internet) Fascinating to see very distinct traits from the parents of this primary hybrid shine through. Paph. glaucophyllum’s greenish, spotted hairy petals and Paph. sanderianum’s striped sepals and shape. We’re so excited to see what the actual flowers on our plant will look.

(picture from Internet) I can’t seem to find any information about what difference “var sukhakul” would have versus a “regular”¬†hirsutissimum. We’ll just have to see for ourselves when we bloom this plant!

(picture from Internet) When I first this plant, I thought it was a Dendrobium. After searching online for pictures of the flowers, WOW! How crazy cool are these flowers?
