Default Psychopsis papilio var aurea concolor

An interesting variety of the ("old" Oncidium papilio) butterfly orchid is
in bloom in Florida now.

It is a Psychopsis papilio var aurea concolor

Have you ever seen this one before?

Mick,

I saw that one at Bergstrom Orchids in Hawaii a couple of years ago. It's
awesome! It was also way out of my price range. I think Bill was asking
$250.00 for a nice in bloom specimen.

Are you flasking it?

Gene

Gene,

I just put 4 flasks of it in the www.OrchidFlask.com orchid flask catalog
last week. I like pure yellow flowers and the parent shows quite nicely on
strong spikes as you can see in the photograph.

There are a few of these specimen plants owned by growers in SE Florida and
I am sure they would command $250 each IF they were selling them... which
nobody is that I know of.

Mick

WOW....I'll bet they go fast!

Hmmm......10 plants at $3.00 each in five years sell them for $250
each....that's better than the stock market!

Love it Mick. We have a yellow form. But not that pure. How do
you photograph it with out the green cast coming out? I don't
like our photos because of the green tone in the yellow flower.

Sue,

I set the brightness setting to 6 on a 10 scale for my Sony Mavica digital
camera, no flash, and always shoot under natural sunlight... I think black
backgrounds behind the flowers give the truest color for the flower... plus
there was not even a hint of green tone in this flower to start with.

Mick
