    That is a pretty slipper orchid, Rudy. Below is an update for your tag. The cross has not been named, but one of the parents has been named. Here is the new name for your tag:

    (Paph Ambiente x Paph Senne Nacht)

    Here is the parent that was named:
    Paph. Senne Nacht (Paph. Rosemarie Herrmann x Paph. Nettie McNay)

    Cheers,
