    That's what the tag says. I thought it was light too, but looking through the awarded philippinenses, there are some that color.

    Hi Michael, this is an absolute cracker of a paph! Good display and definitely worth the wait.

    Is it ok to get a close up of the flowers please? The colouration is unusual for a Paph philippinense and a close up may reveal a little more about it's identity.

    cheers

    I called the vendor on this one and he told me they had a problem with the labeling.

    It is not a straight phil. v. laevigatum. It's phil. v. laevigatum x (phil v. laevigatum x kolopakingii v. topperri). I believe philippinense x kolopakingii is Paph. Temptation.

    Temptation, indeed! Although the philippinense, rothschildianum & sanderianum crosses are not the paphs I like the most, they are the ones I admire the most. Great blooming & growing.

    Cheers,
    Rob
