    New baby!!! :D (plant shows are dangerous!)

    But I was very good and only came home with *one* new orchid from the Genesee Region Orchid Show. I've wanted a Paph forever and this one was calling me:

    Paph. 'Green Heron' x 'Magic Jewel'




    I can post some other pics from the show later, but the lighting was really lousy for photography so I need to tweak some of them first.... GORGEOUS plants, I wanted to take them all home!!!

    Very nice purchase. Can I get a close up of the leaves?

    certainly!



    I loved all the Paphs they had and would have been thrilled with any of them, but this one got bonus points for foliage, since it'll be leaves most of the time anyway

    Very nice! The other benefit of the mottled-leaf Paphs is that they don't need as much light as the green-leaf ones. If you haven't yet, post it in the orchid section too, so Josh will see it. He has photo of his Paph roth there and I'm not sure he strays away from that section.

    I had seen that exact plant in a book, but it had no label! I thought it was amazing then, and I still think that. And now I know its name, thanks!
    that makes no logic

    There are others that are very similar, so don't assume what you saw in the book is the same.

    Only one? I go crazy at the orchid show and usually wind up buying a lot of stuff I can't get at the local orchid greenhouses - especially from vendors who take Visa!
