    very nice! Also...there are most likely one plant with multiple growths. It is unusual to have more than one plant per pot.

    Shantyman,

    Some impressive flower display you have there! I love it!
    I hope you its OK for me to post my Paph by the same name for comparison. Looks somewhat different. I have no idea which one has the right name, but whatever it be, I liked mine too.

    Ania, that is a wonderful plant! So many flowers open at once! Your plant is what I had in mind with how Helvetia should look like... there's a lot of philippinense influence on your plant, e.g. the dorsal line markings, the twisted petals with more of the philippinense colour.

    Of course its OK to post your, also very nice, plant for comparison. That can only make things more interesting. We both know now what the name of our plant is, and moreover how the Helvetia and Ethel should look.
