    It appears that I both saw and commented on your photo without paying attention to much else...I apologize for my fits of illiteracy, Heather.

    I do not think it is a Gina Short (Pinnochio x delenatii) because of the patterning on the dorsal and petals. Most of the straight cochlopetalum x delenatii have dorsals with hints of green/yellow and with minimal striping. The petal striping is also much more reminiscent of a coryopedilum x delenatii (i.e. Delrosi) than a cochlo x del. The overall shape is clearly not a coryo x del though, and fits better with the cochlo x del, which includes names like Delophyllum, Deperle, Annabellchen, etc.

    However, it is unusual (but not unheard of) for a straight cochlo x del to have 3 flowers open at once. del often has 2 open at once, rarely 3, but the cochlos are usually quite successive with no more than a few days of overlap between 2 flowers. If someone put a gun to my head, I'd have to say it has elements of del, coryo, and cochlo. But I'd be hard pressed to name any names, and might be wrong anyway.

    Whatever it is, it is attractive and well-grown. Perhaps you can check with your source--they may have bloomed some others and can ID it?

    Thanks Jason. I'll have to read up on all that so that it makes more sense.

    I don't know what it is either. The source won't know either, I am sure. It is sort of a long and rather embarrasing newbie mistake story! I actually ordered a Phrag., but they didn't have it, so shipped me this instead. Which, when I complained to them about, they credited my account. It is pretty nice for a free plant, dontcha think?

    Another good lesson learned!

    Just wanted to clarify that it still *could* be a Gina Short or a similar hybrid, although it would be difficult to tell them apart definitively. The striping on the dorsal bothers me though.

    We all have newbie mistake stories. I'm still making mistakes and I've been growing these things way too long...was the plant tagless or is there some code on them at least?

    I agree, all the pics I've seen of Gina Short don't look like this plant. The pouch isn't right either. I tried to find my discussion of this on another forum (can't recall which it was!) but searches were unsuccessful.

    Tag- no, no tag. I think it needs repotting, as the media is broken down, so I wonder if I'll find something when I do that, inside the pot or something. Won't be doing that until it has finished blooming though.

    Thx. So these are the flowers attached to the noid plant whose roots are in that recent thread. From the look of the base of that plant, I sure would have thought that the blooms would be a lot more burgundy.

    These things'll fool you every time....
