    Zain, the flower features are correct for the supposed cross as does the foliage I can see in the background, mottled to a degree. Is it possible to find out where the plant was grown before you bought it ? This would help.

    I don't think anyone in the British Paph Society would call this a Bulldog type ! Making guesses about the parentage, the very short stem is a culture fault ; it is the brachypetallums - bellatulum, godefroyae, concolor and niveum which are "neckless" - as infdfeed the latin "brachy" implies. and there is none of their genes here. So better grown, and staked appropriately, this is a flower which will hold up its head, and the dusky colouring will make it rather nice indeed. I hope it likes your conditions Zainal !

    I am attaching a pic of the real (British) Bulldog, btw.I have a lot of similar crosses which take their name from this.

    of course you're right Geoff. Thanks for the correction. I should have used 'complex' as Zainal did. A friend pointed out to me he doesn't like to use 'bulldog' unless they were The Paph Winston Churchill crosses, preferring to use 'teacup' instead.
