    A sequential bloomer is a plant that opens one flower, then when it drops there will be another bud behind it that opens, etc., etc. Many paphs have this habit, while others are multi-floral, which means several flowers will be open at once (like the prince edward of york uncasteeb posted). And the maudiea and complex type paphs have one bloom per spike. The single bloom plants tend to have the longest lasting individual flower, while the sequential bloomer flowers last almost as long, and the multiflorals tend to be the shortest (per flower!) However, a sequential bloomer can stay in bloom for many months.

    Sure looks like it could be Paph Honey [philippinense_x_primulinum]...
    maybe made with roebellinii instead of philippinense... as indicated by the
    strongly twisted petals...
    (RHS doesn't recognize Paph roebellinii as a valid species... they consider it a syn. for philippinense)...
    also... back in the early 80's... another primulinum primary was registered...
    it was named Prim-n-Proper... it had praestans as the other parent...
    (RHS says glanduliferum is the correct name for praestans)... and it also looked a lot like yours... complete with the down-flexed twisted petals...
    is the flower sorta small... about 4 to 5 inches across... it could be in that group of hybrids...

    Hope this doesn't confuse you more...
    Regards... Scotty

    follow-up to my other reply...
    here are 2 pics of Paph Prim-n-Proper...
    (from the web...so sorry)...
    I think... because of the color and shape of your staminode
    and color of the pouch... that this might NOT be the correct item...
    but it's close...
    could be that the cochlopetalum parent might NOT be primulinum...
    but more like victoria-reginae or chamberlainianum var latifolium...
    they both have a dark purple staminode...

    Regards... Scotty.

    I ususally get 2 flowers , 1 after the other so only a small sequence.
    I think the concensus last year was that the parents could be paph chamberlainianum x paph wilhelminiae.This was based on flower size , LS & general growth but could easily be something more complex.

    Oh that's a beauty! I have a paph hybrid with a very similar flower which I ordered "in bloom" last spring. It came with the bloom rolling around in the box--so sad. It's working on another one now--it is growing at a snail's pace.
