Hence, we know the name of this cross if it is made using the garden variety of lowii. Back to the drewing board ... hehehe ...

    Yet if one of the parents is one of those species in dispute, it is not a named cross. So which one is the other parents? There are not many guesses left, heheheeee ...

    I can't say I see the "bolder" brachys in there, i.e. bellatulum or godefroyae. concolor isn't used that much but often produces golden-brown tones. so my guess would be the small white one!

    Okay - the old timers know, and the newbies aren't guessing. Ron was right, and guessed immediately. The cross is:

    paph niveum x paph richardianum

    I love the delicate coloring, and I hope the future blooms will show more petal shaping and twist, like the richardianum. This is first bloom on first mature growth.

    Ron sent me the name, as it is now registered... and I promptly deleted it . But it was something awful - like Paph Adiribil - NiviRichardii or something similar. Ughh!!

    An awful name for a pretty flower (looked it up)
