Thoughts on a new Paph. cross?

I've tried a new cross. We'll see if it takes. Just an experiment, but I really think it would be pretty. Hopefully all of you Paph. people won't think I've done a bad thing. It may not even "take". I've just crossed my( Paph. Hsinying Citron x Paph. Dr. Calsow 'Ching Hua') with my (Paph. Emerald Magic 'In-Charm x Paph. Pacific Shamrock 'Huel)
I don't know if these will take, but I'm really excited about trying. I'm looking for the Emerald magic type bloom with maybe some striping in the dorsal.
Any thoughts? Am I nuts?


BTW- Happy Mothers Day! I'll be away for a couple of days- I'll look for any response when I return!

I'm not familiar with those Paphs, could you post a picture of each flower?

I would say, if your plants are strong and your serious, you wanna get looking for a flasker now

Something I'd love to try in the future.

Good luck

A "bad" thing!?!?! How could the fun of trying your first cross be a bad thing?

Well anyone who starts breeding orchids is a little bit nuts but not nuts in a bad way. But seriously....

The first parent is a Maudiae type. Is it green or vinicolour? As i recall, the Citron parent is a green/white Maudiae type but I dont' know the other parent....[pause while I look it up]....it's a vinicolor with Onyx as one of the parents, so a dark vini.

The other parent is a green exhibition type.

I did some looking around for crosses of Maudiae types by exhibition types and here's what I found:

Here's a green version of Paph Maudiae, obviously a Maudiae-type
Here's Paph Valerie Tonkin, an exhibition paph
And here's what you get when they're crossed.
And here's another pic of the same cross.

Compare the Valerie Tonkin pictured above to patticake's Emerald Magic/Pacific Shamfock cross pictured here. You'll see they're quite similar.

I think it is an interesting and appealing choice for crossing because you can clearly see the influence of each parent, probably because each parent is so different in appearance.

Fingers crossed that the pollination takes! This will be a fun one!

Oooo, Kevin! Thanks for the shot in the arm! Thanks also for putting the link to my Pacific Shamrock Pic. I'm heading out the door for a couple of days, and don't have time to look for and post the pics.
The pollen parent is my maudiae type. The picture is the one that I got the intermediate photo for in February(I think). Yes... P. 2- It would be in the photo contest archives thread. We'll see if it takes before I get too excited....
Your pics. are MOST helpful!

Tom- I've been looking for a flasker for the Catt. cross that I have growing. I have a little time...
