    Here's my guess. Plants on the end have Longifolium as the common parent. One on the right looks like a Mont Fallu, left is Wallisii. Plant in the middle looks like it has a bessae cross.

    I am afraid I have to leave the glory for other forum members, like Julie and Timmy-O and Jason ... I might have some ideas about these phrag plants but my knowledge about these guys are not very strong/solid as mine regarding paphs. Besides, it is a triple threat, oh dear ... The probability of getting it wrong is just going through the roof according my binary wabbit brain !!! Hehhheehhee! So it is just a sorry excuse for me happily staying on the sideline, watching, reading and learning!!!!

    Computers "think" in binary code/language. And we all know the saying "hare brain". Now you see what I meant, in jest of course! Heheheheheee!

    There is longifolium in the mix for sure... but it is not a parent on either of the end ones, although it could be a grand parent.... (Hint Hint) and longifolium could definitely be a parent for the middle one...

    so to recap...

    # 2 is a primary hybrid, with longifolium as a parent... but what is the other? One thing is for sure, it has Super colour!

    1. & 3 have the same parent which by what you keep hinting is quite Grand and in one of Julie's post you mentioned that the species caudatum was a grandparent and the hybrid was a parent... so...

    hmm... thinkun caps on...

    Are you passing out hints? Super HINTS? Yeah, we are kind of figure that out, one of them seems to be supergrande, and others have some grande but Diane's hints are so much like another riddle on their own!!!
