Paph. henryanum (Paph. henryanum ‘Dos DD’s x Paph. henryanum ‘DD’s Supreme’)
This is really a nice little Paph.  By breeding with select, superior cultivars, we are looking for improvements of the heavily spotted dorsals and dark pink pouches.  Here is a picture of one of the first to bloom Limited supply

4” pots, $25

SVO 1968       
Paph. barbatum (Paph. barbatum ‘Plum’ x self)
This is one of my favorite Maudiae-type Paphs.  The cultivar ‘Plum’ was selected from many in flower and has a very dark pouch and a nice broad dorsal. These are reliable growers and bloomers, and the plants offered here are handsome, with multiple growths. Picture of a first blooming plant

SVO 5745 NEW
Paph. venustum (Paph. venustum ‘SVO’ AM/AOS x Paph. venustum 'Christmas Highlight')

The ‘SVO’ cultivar is excellent with fantastic color and a vigorous growing habit, it is a cross of (‘Fox Catcher’ FCC/AOS x ‘Album Beauty‘), so half of its genes came from an album parent.  The plant 'Christmas Highlight' is one of the finest I have seen with superior color, size and form, just take a look at the picture.  This grex may produce some albums but I expect most to be in rich dark colors. Plants are also showing good vigor.

2” rose pots, $20

SVO 2282
Paph. delenatii   (Paph. delenatii ‘1/2 album’ x Paph. delenatii var. album ‘SVO White Knight’ HCC/AOS)

Paph. Transvaal ‘Merienda Lane’ HCC/AOS x Paph. Shin Yi’s Pride ‘SVO’ AM/AOS

This type of breeding has produced excellent results. Transvaal (Paph. chamberlainianum x Paph. rothschildianum) will improve the dorsal width and add spotted petals. Shin Yi’s Pride (Paph. Michael Koopowitz x Paph. rothschildianum) will add large flower size,  bold coloring and 5 blooms per stem.  These plants are strong growers and near blooming size!  I expect them to look like the very successful cross, Lebeau (Paph. Transvaal x Paph. rothschildianum).

Whoa!!! check this out this first to bloom...these are going to be great.  Don't miss out on these.

Paph. Magic Lantern (Paph. delenatii ‘SVO V’ HCC/AOS x Paph. micranthum ‘Commodious’)

Paph. Samantha Lowry (Paph. Ho Chi Minh x Paph. delenatii ‘Pink Pearl’)
Ho Chi Minh (Paph. vietnamense x Paph. delenatii) flowers look like an extra large delenatii on very easy-to-grow plants.  ‘Pink Pearl’ is one of the modern delenatii; it has full shape with wide, flat, dark pink petals and a darker pink lip. This cross will make for what I would call a “Super Delenatii.”  Large pink flowers with darker pink lips on vigorous plants.

4” pots, $25
