Default poll: place your bets on bloomtime - paphiopedilum micranthum v. eburneum

ladies and gentlemen, orchid servants of all shapes and sizes, races, creeds, and identities...come now and take a tiny gander at the diminutive marvel of the micranthum!

yet it is with the greatest of joy that we have witnessed movement in the bud, and implore you all to wager your immense fortunes on the date this little guy will open up.

admission to the game is admittedly large as well: free.

but the winner this time will receive an orchid in the mail from a regional grower near them, provided they want to pm me their address upon winning.

so now here the details to help inform your decision. the plant came to us with juuuust the tiniest fuzz open on the bud. it was moved to semi-hydro around 2 months ago and just in the last couple days is showing some signs of movement.

keep in mind, paphs seem to take approximately the short side of never to bloom...at least in our care!

rules as always:

type A: bud blasts ( provide date of death )
type B: flower opens ( provide date flower first cracks open)

only 2 options, cause it’s a 1 flower paph. we here wish you the most enourmous amount of luck to win the first, official, awarded edition of bloom time to ever hit the webs!!!

oh, and it’ll be a cheap orchid (like max 25 bux) cause, you know, money don’t grow on orchids and you lot don’t deserve any better

as usual, we wanted to give a tiny addition to the op this time to take the shortest moment and recognize the really tiny accomplishments of the past winners here at bloomtime.

1st edition winner: camille (within 2 days of opening on paph. germaine vincent)

2nd edition: no winner, due to the naeivitee of us (new growth on fdk. after dark black pearl)

3rd edition winner: mygreenpets (within less than a week of opening on phal. ld’s bear king yk 10)

4th edition winner: ??? you ???

congratulations

you could also have your name in lights along with these two other random people on the Internet! think of all the glory!

also, we forgot to remind you all that there will be an official closing date on guesses. not the smallest idea when that is yet, but the window will at least be as long as the median ear hair length on an african elephant. so, you’ve got some time.

and while our vision remains narrow, our hopes abound that all of you never-participants will wade into the scary waters and place your bet. you never know the full outcomes of even the smallest actions....

Can I give a guess for each type or do I have to pick one? Since I have no experience with paphs it would be just that...a guess.

well well we’ll, there are some new faces in the crowd here! and, as usual, dustyolman tryin to bend the rules (and so you newcomers know, it’s just cause he has a hard time bending over)....but dusty, sorry the rules committee has decided it’s a 1 vote game. and, just to ease your dis-ease a little, we have no idea either.

and for such a small plant, it’s probly worthy to note the gigantic spread of guesses. roberta....March??!! everyone keep an eye on her.

dalachin, welcome to the biggest opportunity to lose this side of the mason-dixon! and keep us posted on your spicerianum! ours just keep growing new fans. however, your early december birthday may put you in a superior position.

and another big newcomer welcome to hazeldell! mid-january is the safe bet....for now. but best of luck to you, and may all your tiniest wishes come true.

thanks for playing everyone, and stay tuned for the flood of 11th hour guesses that are certain not to arrive! we truly have nothing but immense hope for you, yet we know that most of us will sulk away in despair when an option A winner takes the cake
