    I think both are probably labeled correctly because seedlings from the same cross can vary quite a lot, and (as Gin & Ron have pointed out) these probably were seedlings that came out of the same flask or series of flasks. Keep in mind, you can't mericlone a Paph, so all clones are divisions of an original plant and that takes much more growing time to raise a plant to saleable size.

    By the way, according to OrchidWiz, this cross (Supersuk X Raisin Pie) is named Paph Hsinying Alien. I'd suggest adding a clonal name--your choice is limited only by your imagination!--to each, when they bloom.

    Anyhow, I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing the blooms when they open. Crosses with sukhakulii in them, and this one is about half sukhakulii, are among my favourite paphs!

    Cheers,
    Rob
    Thanks, Rob! I was hoping for a bloom yesterday, again today...... I can't wait... No bloom yet... Have to be patient.....

    YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHH First bloom!!! It's still not open, but after I've been checking it about every 10 min. for a week... Hope the other one opens soon so we can see the difference (if any...)

    gosh no wonder it's called 'hsinying alien"... check out the pouch!

    loving the dorsal marking on that and the spots on the petals are really working for this flower!

    just goes to show the variation you can get from a bunch of seedlings... which at this stage of hybridizing and the gene pool that these two would have come from.. it's no surprise.. though the sukhakulii influence (ie spots) is always so strong.

    Really? No wonder those FCC Paphs that I see being sold as clones are extremely expensive!

    I really wonder why Paphs can't be cloned yet with all the mericloning technology available today. Hmmm .... perhaps cloning is possible but just very difficult. I read somewhere on the net some experiment by some Japanese and Chinese agri-scientists regarding the cloning method for Paphs found here:

    PROCESS FOR CLONING PAPHIOPEDILA - Patent EP0800761
