    Based on the various photos of Honey I've found, I'd say you probably have as good a match with it, as any. I've looked at photos of Prime Child, Judge Philip, Imperial Jade, Clifton Booth and Saint Pinot, all of which have either primulinum or Pinocchio as one parent and rothschildianum, stonei, philippinense or Saint Swithin as the other, and none of them are any closer to your plant, although several are quite similar. I'd say Clifton Booth was probably the next best match. Mind you, I'm not saying you should go ahead and definitely call it Honey--especially not on just my opinion! There are a few real paph people on this forum--not simply paph-head wannabes like me! I hope they will chime in.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Realy Rob thanks a lot for you help in finding the name..At the moment, I am inclined to call it Paph Honey than to call it "Paph??" in my database he he he.
    Whatever the name, it is beautiful

    Just a small update. I have attached a new picture where now two flowers are open. What is even better news is that two other growths are now in bud, so its really exciting!

    It is possibly either Paph Honey (philippinense x primulium) or Paph Judge Philip (philippinense x Pinocchio).
    Cochlopetalum hybrids are always difficult to ID as they breed similarly! I want to say that it is Paph Honey, but I don't want to at the same time

    Your blooms are certainly nicer than my Judge Philip, so nice blooms!

    I love the way the petals spiral on the sides.
