    It looks like a haynaldiaunm cross - I think Lebaudyanum. But I was too lazy to look it up! It was easier to ask. If I asked about the reflex a bit back, I'm sure that's it. I had one and thought it reflexed assymetrically. Diane very willingly gave it a loving home.

    I'm curious about the other one, though.

    I love Milts, but I don't know enough about the species and crosses for the name to mean much. I name mine "dead" and "alive."

    Wow, this was like a mini-paph IQ...lol! Of course mini meaning small quiz *not* small paph.

    Okay, you are correct about the Lebaudyanum.

    The second paph is Helvetia (philippinense x chamberlainianum)

    And for anyone with a really good eye, the little paph (not in bloom) that has the extremely dark foliage is Paph. Armeni White. Very cute plant but needs to be kept cool and moist.

    The milt is Pearl Ono 'Lliwal' AM/AOS x Milt. santanael '4n'


    The water spots on the blooms are more apparent from the other side. I chose to photograph the better-looking side.

    Cheers!

    That's a great Lebaudyanum. I much prefer that petal stance to the usual one!
