    Default Paph (concob x niveum) soon to bloom for first time

    I guess that a color somewhere between white and cream, with some spots, is a safe bet
    Maybe there's a more simple name out there - haven't searched yet - but I'll just show you the label.

    amazingly I found a Picture of that cross. I guess this is just one of many possible outcomes, but it gives an idea.

    Two of the parents as look just like this, and the other two, the niveums, are much nearer plain white or cream, but probably all are smaller. You will need a lot of heat to succeed with this in Denmark. I wish you all success - few growers in our European corner of the world can keep them long.

    I used to live in Sweden but the problem to keep Paph. niveum in good spirits followed me to the US. It is just to cold for niveum in my growing area during winter. It is quite funny because other very warm growing orchids such as Rhynchostylis and Aerides seem much more forgiving in that respect.

    I agree. I can keep Phally species alive and growing, flowering, too - although not as well as I would like. But the warmer growing Paphs, no. After visiting the Ang Thong islands in the sea, a way off the coast of Thailand, the home of P.niveum Ang Thong variety, I got a Thailand nursery to find a good plant for me. Six flowers the first year, Then 4 then 2, and finally it faded away altogether....
    And when I see things like leuchochilum and godefroyae shown by members here, and think of all the plants and flasks etc I have tried over the past. 50 years plus... I just give up.
    Now Cattleyas, Dendrobiums and some other things, I can get them to grow like weeds. I love weeds !

    The leucochilum used is album, so you should expect much less spots than the picture you posted, this one grows hot, mid summer my temps are 90 from midday to almost midnight thrives new roots and new growths

    Still too early to be sure about anything, but I think it has a rosy hue to it already, and some some tiny spots. time will tell though.
