    I am questioning if the plant was labeled correctly. Someone on another forum sent me a pic of the cross that this is suppose to be and it sure looks different than this flower.

    I purchased it as Paph Unique roth x fairrieanum

    I agree with Fren. It doesn't even look like it's a multifloral.

    looks like papa rohl to me, although I don't recall ever seeing fairrieanum x wardii/venustum. no roth in there though.
