    Default Paphiopedilum rotschildianum hybrid

    According to information of the supplier this should be a hybrid based on rotschildianum, with no further specifications. I do like the "strong" looks of the flower, but should welcome some further info about the ancesters.
    Thanks in advance,
    Wim

    Looks very much like Paph Ianthe Stage, P sukhakulii x rothschildianum. Surprizing it didn't have 2 flowers on the spike even on this small plant. Can have 3 flowers per spike on a mature plant.

    I would agree with Roy, although I also get more than one flower on a spike as well with this cross

    Default Thank you

    Ron and Roy, thanks for your input. Perhaps I had only one flower because this was only the second flower after the plant was taken from the motherplant. The leaves were growing very fast and I was surprised it bloomed so fast after the first one. Nevertheless, even with one flower I was proud and happy.

    That is a beautiful bloom, next time I'm sure you will have multiple flowers on the spike.


    PS Where in the Netherlands are you located? I travel to my company's offices in Breda a couple times a year.

    great flower. probably Iantha Stage as it is a very common (and quite excellent) cross, but the less common Phillip Ruggiero (roths x St. Swithin) can look very similar as well.
