Wow - I have had 3 of these and all three were more coloratums than vinis (that is. multi-colored, rather than dark burgundy), but you never know with Paph. hybrids - they use variations among the species themselves to develop the three basic color patters (for Maudiaes, that's the class alba form -green and white, the coloratum form, and the vinicolors). I prefer vinis and this is very pretty, Connie. They DO take their sweet time to open, but once open, they last ages. I think Bruce may have told me that this cross is now called Hsinying Alien, but I may have it confused with something else. Keep collecting them - they're FUN!
