    This paph bloom has a great shape to it. I agree with you but I am not an AOS judge.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Lovely form and color, but I'm no judge either. It looks so species-like, I checked it out. Paph Hot Spots = Red Glory x henryanum. It's 50% henryanum, 34% callosum, 14% lawrenceanum and 2% mastersianum. So it's not as complex as many, hence the strong species resemblence.

    Nice one!

    going by the species in the mix, it sounds like it would be considered one of the 'Maudiae types'.

    As for Hot Spots, it sure has a lovely dark colour and sheen on it. I'm no judge either so can't help with that one.
