A rungsuriyanum x helenae would be a nice cross. Perhaps tranlienianum x rungsuriyanum would be an abomination. :rollhappy:
For me, it would have to be:
delenatii (have you ever seen an ugly del cross?)
gigantifolium (why not cross the tiny plant with a giant. Can't you see a rungsuriyanum with gigantifolium petals?)
Paph venustum. (come on, you know you want to do it)
Paph micranthum
Paph hookerae, or volunteanum - seriously this will be awesome. Would definitely buy some of those

Something big and complex. Yerba Buena "Whitecap" will suffice. Or a big green. I will buy that in flask.
Venustum (preferably Fox Catcher)
Kolopakingii (preferably Riopelle)
Rothschildianum (preferably Raptor)
Moquettianum (preferably Baker's Passion)
Anitum (preferably Ace)

I'll take one of each. After my self-inflicted purchase ban is over.
yep hookerae and/or volonteanum is a good call and probably more realistic than with tigrinum
with some complex too

Paeony for the color ans shape in pink possible
Hellas wich works very well with species
and with good white as white knight, skipp barttlet (for tiny complex), albion too for the small size
In the words of John Lennon, "you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not."
Well, paraphrased, anyway. The words are actually:
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one​

Good advice, I'd say.
