Ah! Very nice! how large is the bloom and how long has it been open?
It was in bloom when I got it last Summer. I do not recall exactly how large it was, 2.5 - 3 inches seems to be about what it may have been when I block off that distance on a ruler. It was one of the larger (largest?) paph flowers I have had though.
I just did a next level search on the parentage and those 8 plants are all at least primary hybrids too. This is one complex dude.
nice golden colours and ruffles. The pouch look a little wrinkly, was this just before the flower dropped?
That is a gorgeous color! wOW.
