    This nice primary hybrid yielded two flowers this season for me. No fragrance, but I was pleased with the coloring and spotting. Thanks for looking!

    very nice. the RHS does not recognize a distinction between glaucophyllum & moquettianum, so that grex is Paph. Guacamole. If in the future they should recognize moquettianum as a separate species, it will be no doubt renamed Wossner Malimoq.

    Was that the first blooming for you?

    NICE plant!!! The pouch shape reminds me of Gold Dollar. What is the wingspan of this flower? I'm guessing 10cm or so???

    GREAT GROWING!

    Thanks for the nice praise! Piper, yes, this is the first time this plant has flowered, and I'm looking forward to future blooms!

    Garland, the flower is about 4.5 inches wide.
