    holey moley!!!

    THIS IS WONDEFUL!!!

    You have a Paph philippinense x Paph anitum!!!!

    boring part: (now if you follow the taxonomists, this would be Paph Addicted Philip because anitum is only given varietal status to Paph adductum.)

    I tell you what though, I sure can get addicted to this! The darkness is absolutely wonderful.

    oooh, I wish mine would bloom already.

    -- edit--
    this is one Paph hybrid that i would rate as high as any species, and higher than many... this is an absolute keeper!

    That is indeed wonderful! Pictures of it caught my eye before: I love philippinense for its shape and markings but I also love the dark and unusual, so was intrigued by H.Koopowitz's 'darth vader' connotation.

    So, it's a logical hybrid to like. But still, the color I see in my room is different from most of the pics out there. There's even a video showing one with rather twisted petals; others, like mine, don't twist that much. Now, I've never heard of var. anitum and looked it up. H.Koopowitz says something about small translucent 'windows' on the upper dorsal sepal. Surely that trait would not cross over? We'll have to see. Thanks, Tim for your expert opinion. I really appreciate it.

    (23:35? Is that the time? Gosh, gotta hit the sack. yeehaw.)

    Greetz,
    Andries
