This stonei plant started a sheath almost one year ago. I have been carefully pulling the outer leaves off periodically to prevent bacterial rot (happens for me in Florida periodically to sheaths/spikes on my slippers and Watts) and finally a spike is emerging
Sometimes the grower I purchased this plant from has mislabeled plants. Until I get one to bloom I can’t always be assured the plant I purchased is the one the label indicated. I have a Paph. Paul Parks and it looks similar but with longer petals and a larger leaf span.
I am not sure if this cross has a registered name. The petals are continuing to elongate and twist daily.
I like the size, darker pink and wide form yet not as nicely shaped as the larger pouch, lighter pink and more twisted petals of Schroderae
Peruflora’s Spirit x wallisii
I have a few of these and none when in bloom look identical.
Phrag. Schroderae is my favorite Phrag slipper and this is a look-a-like IMO although my Phrag Frank Smith can look similar but twice the size bloom.
