    This is my first Paph flower. I just picked it up last week from an Orchid society meeting. The tag says Paph. 'Hirst'. I did a search and nothing came up. Some lady there told me the flower is green. But looking at what's emerging, it looks purple [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] I sure hope its purple, I don't like green flowers too much. I love how fuzzy it is [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] Can't wait till it opens!

    Congratulations, Larry.

    They are a beauty when they are in bloom.

    Well, if you're lucky, maybe 'Hirst' will turn out as an abbreviation for hirsutissimum.

    I'm awaiting my first Paph blooms as well (though it looks like my Phrag longifolium will open even before them!).

    Even if it is green... all Paphs have nice flowers

    The really surprising thing is how few people grow Paphs. They are so easy to grow, and yet so beautiful in flower.

    It does look similar to P. hirsutissimum
    Peace

    Nice fat bud, Larry. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I love the paphs. I have one in bud, one who's bud is just now popping. Hope to get some photos soon. Maybe I'll do that tonite.
    Although I hate the watering chore,that is when I usually discover little spikes starting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, it finally opened Unfortunately, it isn't a hirsutissimum But I still LOVE it. It's so beautiful! Any of you orchid experts have another guess? Here's some pics I took last night.
