    Paphiopedilum rothschildianum x sib (Miles x Giant Wings GM/WOC

    I have a few roths and St Swithins that have Commander in the mix selfings. I guess originally from Radcliffe. I see your point about Nurseries using names of good quality plants in crosses in order to sell, when in fact they are anything but those named. And therefore the result is very...

    Paph sanderianum 'Jungle Magic'

    Remember there are Sanderianuiums with more of a honey or brown pouch, and a less red pouch. See Cribs books, the in-situ photos show one or two with more of a brownish pouch. Yours looks like the real thing.

    Paphiopedilum rothschildianum x sib (Miles x Giant Wings GM/WOC

    It is good to see some other wild-collected roths maybe in the mix. From what I have seen, shown here and available commericallty, the majority of roth line breeding to date has used the wild collected plants; Charles E, Borneo, Rex, Mt Mlllias, and Commander, with selfings of these 5 in the...

    You be the judge

    Very true and interesting Frank, from an AOC perspective I have seen a fantastic Paph Harold Koopowitz on the show bench (The plants' owner was a Commerical grower) and when it was suggested to be put up for an award by judges it was rejected as being I quote "Too ostentatious". I believe on a...
