    All the Envy Green's I have seen have looked much more like malipoense ; this could almost be primulinum. Maybe one of your parents was not the pure ting , but merely a hybrid look-alike.

    Love the Cochlopetalum x Parvisepalum hybrids like this. This one is well within range for Envy Green in my experience. You're much more likely to see the good ones at shows or in pictures than the more average ones like this, and if this a smallish plant or first bloom seedling it is likely to fill out a bit when the plant is more mature. It is also possible this could result from a tetraploid primulinum with a diploid malipoense. To whatever extent it does resemble the primulinum parent more than malipoense it is likely to have more flowers per spike, some compensation for a less dramatic flower.

    The leafy bract at every node is typical for Paphs with sequential-flowering ancestry, and lacking (or aborting) a bud at the first node is actually pretty common for sequential x non-sequential hybrids.

    I didn't know that; makes sense now. Thanks.

    cheers,
