    very small flowers on this one (3-4 in. petal length) look how big the twist tie looks in relation to the flower size.

    It's very philippinense... so I guess what it got from the primulinum is the flower size aye. Is this a first flowering? Is it possible for the flowers to get bigger on subsequent flowering? Also, is the plant any smaller?

    I'm a philippinense fan so this gets a big thumbs up. Love your pics mattbrown.

    Cheers

    thanks....
    the plant is of normal size... it is a second bloom. i don't expect them to get much bigger if any on the next bloom.

    i have a:
    Paph. Philippinense ‘Angel wings’HCC/AOS X
    Paph. Philippinense ‘Easter Parade’ HCC/AOS (this plant is massive.)

    and a
    Paph. Philippinense Var. Album ‘Jeanie’ X
    Paph. Philippinense Var. Album ‘ Immaculate Album’ S/SCA

    going into spike soon.
    i'll keep posting pics as they bloom.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your philippinense's when they bloom. And you have var album. Still havent seen one in real life, and hopefully there is one around in this neck of the woods. Oh and awards galore... well done!

    cheers
