    That does look very nice, and I am a big fan of the sequential and multi-floral paphs. I certainly like the fact that it is easy!

    Would I be right is assumsing that Paph primulinum is quite dominant in this cross? I noticed that this paph is somewhat similar to Pinocchio, which also has primulinum as one of it's parents. The other parents (philippense and glaucophyllum) are both very different. I can see where they might have contributed some colouring, the pink tinge and the stripes, but they are very different shapes and textures, all those warts!

    Sorry, having a little foray into the world of crosses.....

    Great questions, Kerry! You're developing a keen Paph eye.

    Many of the larger genera (including Paphs) are subdivided into sections, which are sub-genera, containing species with very similar characteristics. By studying the sections, you really learn about the plants. The genera are too large and varied, as a whole. The section will teach you the culture and habits of the plants.

    Primulinum and glaucophyllum are both species in the Cochlopetalum Section of Paphs. Often shortened to Cochlo. The Cocholos are all sequential bloomers, and their looks are very similar. It's often hard to differentiate the parents of Cochlo primary hybrids. Jason can, but mere mortals are often torn between species.

    Paph philippinense is a member of the Coryopedilum Section, my personal favorite section. These are the grandest of Paphs: rothschildianum, sandernarium, philippinense, kolopakingii, etc, etc. They're multifloral and spectacular in bloom, with earth tone colors, mixed occasionally with greens, and some huge flowers! Not all, but some.

    Learn the sections and you'll learn your Paphs!
