This is Paph. Z4135 x charlesworthii. It's my first orchid to receive any kind of award, which happened this past weekend at my society's meeting, where little ribbons are handed out to the best plants shown by members.





This is my newest addition, Paph (S. Gratrix x bellatulum) x micranthum. The flower is bigger than the rest of the plant!

Thanks for your interest!

Congrats.
What is Z4135? Is it a code for something?
You are probably right. I think most breeders do that for unnamed crosses.

Thanks for all the great complements everyone!
SlipperFan, it is a code, I believe for a very old Winston Churchill cross that was never properly named. This cross must have had a Maudiae type in it, judging by the mottled leaves and the shape of the flower.
