    While the shape is consistent with Doctor Toot, the color sure isn't! Not much pink, and no stripes.

    I'd be curious if it reblooms like that. What are your thoughts, Diane? Are you happy with it? Looking to breed it? Visions of salad shooters?

    It does have faint pink on the dorsal and synsepal.. IF it reblooms this coloration, I think I might actually show it and see if others like it. If so, I'd look to try breeding.

    If it does flower out the same next time , selfing it may be a good idea.
    I would expect some of the complex paph breeders would be very interested.

    very interesting color...was it by chance made with "topperi"? most say that topperi is just a greener variant of kolo (I haven't seen them side by side so can't comment), and delenatii is known to suppress green/yellow pigment...
