    Default New Paph IQ test

    No prizes, just the fun of competition and a test of your investigative ability. This is a first bloom of this plant. I got it because it is an unusual cross.


    Here is the picture:

    This is not the best picture, but you guys should be used to that from me by now ...

    So, the details..

    I am a primary hybrid. As far as I know, I have not been named (although this can be disputed as one of my parents is considered a separate species by some - and that is the way I am tagged - and a var. of a species by others) My parents are quite different from one another, the one in dispute is a multi-floral. So to clarify - if you follow the name of the parent on my tag, I have no name of my own, but if you were to assume that I was just a var. 'xxxxxx' of species ??????, then I do have a name. (Let the taxonomy struggles begin)


    If you want to guess the cross, PM me. If you want to ask a question, post in this thread.

    That's hardly a feeler question! That's asking for half the answer...

    Boys are rarely subtle...sigh!

    Okay - - delenatii is NOT one of the parents.

    Ron guessed it correctly right off the bat, and he thinks this may have a name now (last year?) Keep going guys!!
