    This cross has P. concolor, P. niveum, and P. delenatii in its makeup. It appears to be completely white but has faint hints of pink, if you look closely. It's a good plant for a shady window since it doesn't require a lot of light to grow and bloom.

    That's a beautiful orchid. I've just started collecting paphs and haven't had any bloom, except Pinocchio which is almost always blooming. I'm really looking forward to getting some nice blooms like yours. Good growing.

    Nice flower, suggests P. delenatii 'alba' was in the parents.

    Really pretty , bright clear white. P. niveum will often give red spots that appear pink, as will P. concolor (along with, usually, a buttery yellow color) - delenatii is, of course, in the parvisepalum alliance, which, in my experience, will only show distinctive parvisosepalum traits when bred with others of the same alliance. The fact that you got so much white out of the two brachypetalums is really nice - I suspect that it was the delenatii's repressing of the yellow-green in the concolor that gave you the white - plus the niveum seem to have been upsized by the P. concolor, although the concolor shorter stem is evident as suppressing both the delenatii's and the niveum's tendency to stand a good bit taller.

    A very healthy specimen named after one of the pre-emintent and fascinating orchid frontiersmen!

    The actual cross is Paph Doctor Jack x P. delenatii. DJ is P. concolor x P. niveum.
    So it's a primary brachy hybrid crossed with a parvi. The form of the pouch I think is definitely from delenatii.
    The stem is actually a bit longer than it looks in the photo, it is coming up at an angle toward the camera
    (not too clear from the camera on my iPad). There is also Paph fowliei, named for him--a cute little plant that is on my wish list.
    Thanks for the interesting comments.
