Can anyone please identify this for me? I bought it as cruentum also... The whole plant is pretty small, only about 6 inches tall at first blooming... these pics were taken during its last blooming. sorry i don't have bigger pics at the moment... Thanks! :)

Berrak, very nice plant...

Paphioboy, your plant is a mericlone made by Doi Tung in Thailand of one of their good quality cruentum.

Thanks, Sanderianum... I'm amazed that you can identify the orgin of my plant by just looking at it... :)
Not that difficult, there are not that many real cruentum available in Thailand or Malaysia at present time, and only 2 sources, one from the wild, with different type lips, or the ones from Doi Tung, mericlone of a single plant that has the very same flower. I would not trust any other sources at the moment actually ( Thais have done too many hybrids and backcrossing).

It is a shame that peoples mix-up things so much (specially if it is done purposedly for financial benefit)

here is the link to a nice picture of suzuki.
