    FINALLY the bud opened! But I must admit, I am a tad disappointed. Not that it isn't a beautiful flower, but it is NOT what I was expecting. The photo I saw of this hybrid was pink and yellow and looked like a sunrise...which is why I bought it. It was just gorgeous. I do not remember reading any note that it may or may not look like the photo (as I see noted sometimes).

    It is a solid yellow...pretty and a nice departure from the vini types that are so common.

    Well without any further ado....here it is!



    This is paphiopedilum (Copperopolis x FC Puddles) x Paph Primulinum

    I like it, too (and nice camera work! ). It's all part of the 'fun' of Paphs - no mericlones and every unflowered plant a mystery. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks guys! I like it too...it is beautiful...but when you wait months expecting something else.... I wouldnt mind so much had I known it might not look like the photo. There was no disclaimer as such. And I have seen that before ("flower is expected to look like such and such...").

    Its nice to have a yellow orchid...not a color I have.

    But thanks for all the compliments. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
