    I am curious about your thoughts on the hirsutissimum x urbanianum versus the look of the flower. I have had one comment that indicates that the cross would not produce a flower such as this. I tried to find an example on the net but could not.

    Any comments or pics?

    Hey guys,

    i've been reading your messages but i really think this isn't the cross you are talking about!!! When I look at this flower I see much more something around P. charlesworthii, Leeanum,... then anything else, or a complex hybrid around!! As Idaho said there's not so much info on the net about the crosses and it's not possible to get good comparisons.

    Am I so wrong??? It's strange but I see no P. hirsutissimum at all!!!

    Cheers
    Diogo

    I wonder why there is no pink in the petals at all when both parents have pinkish petals, but theres a slight pink in the dorsal when neither paraent would have pink in the dorsal
    ....Paph spicerianum x charlesworthii? It has a charlesworthii's round staminode, brown petals, pouch and petals. It has spicerianum white dorsal and wavy petals.

    Well, the reason is it is NOT the cross mentioned in my original post. The vendor has confirmed that it is mistagged. I am not sure what to call it now. I have asked for a clarification on the plant name, but it has not been forthcoming as of yet. He has invited me to call and discuss this as well as the charlesworthii that I purchased.

    Still wondering what you think it may be? There seems to be a strong concensus that charlesworthii is strong with this plant.

    Spicerianum and barbigerum have also been mentioned as the mate to Mr. (Mrs.?) Charles. One silly person said it was a besseae!!! hehe The most convincing answer, which has been supported with pictures from the persons own collection, is charlesworthii x barbigerum.

    Looks like my 'Justa Doll'... "Justa Doll" = charlesworthii x gratrixianum

    It's in a thread called Paph Parade, I think... was mis-tagged as It's a Doll, but Tim-o (PoP) correctly identified it.

    Heh, the vendor did all the work. I just pushed him to figure it out before the trail got "cold."
