    both have attractive coloring,
    but i especially enjoy the Virgo x callosum.
    It's almost sporting some floof with the floppy dorsal and wide petals.
    i also like the pointy pouch,
    overall i think it's a nice and interesting looking cross.

    Jason,
    There is about 1/4 " of rosy color right at the base where it meets the medium. Not dark at all. Why were you asking ????

    some of the vini x brachy crosses, the ones where the vini really comes through, are quite striking. imagine a solid red/burgundy flower. the correlation between leaf base and flower color in the different types of paphs is something that always interests me...
