I got three green complex type paphs last month. Well, two of them turned yellow over time and the last one is showing some yellow as well.
I visited the flower market this morning and one store had lots of yellow and green complex paphs. The sad part was that all the nicely shaped and large flowers were all group-planted in big decorative contatiners. They had their name tag taken out as well. not to mention, super expensive for me!
Of the individual pots left behind on the floor (mostly beat up and slightly deformed), I did find one green complex paph that I liked and brought it home.
Its flower is not as large as the typical of the complex paphs, but it is crisp and clean and big enough for me. The best part is that it is green!
oh, the name is quite long, [Elfstone x henryanum] x [ Lavendaer Lovely x P.Shamrock] is what the tag says.
Now, the only thing I'm not familiar with is henryanum. I just looked it up and it has lots of dots on the dorsal.
Who would have guessed it was one in the breeding background for this green beauty!
As a bonus, this plant has two new growths starting! yay!!!!
It is on the far right in the second picture.
