    Nice job Roy. Looks like this one might have some venustum in it?

    Nice one Roy. Not a warmth tolerant type is it?

    The parent Fremont Peak is straight 'barbata' type, the Roberts Reward is a x of Raisin Jack x Mem Robert Ward. Raisin Jack has sukhakulii in it and the Mem R. Ward has mastersianum & acmodontum in the breeding, no venustum.
    I would think it would take warmth (heat) higher than it gets now.

    Thanks Roy. Am trying to grow paphs other than the brachypetalums and warm multifloras.

    Paph barbatum comes from around the Hong Kong area & Malaya so these should be fine.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Roy. You're right about barbatum. Unfortunately they grow only on the highlands between 3-5000 ft. Even in my state Kedah, there used to be huge colonies of them on Kedah Peak, the highest mountain here, just 36 km from where I live.

    BD, most of the plants are seedlings, some single lead divisions. They have been with me for sometime. There are a lot of Paphs in the house.
