Eric, you mention the staminode not twisted, Why? Thats one thing that I never or rarely incur with my paphs. Sometimes I think its a problem with the parents used. I notice it more when looking at some of the Japanese and German bred paphs ( with awards ) and some Taiwanese plants.
One of the frequent problems I have seen with complex paph hybrids is a twisted staminode...I have only seen it on complex paphs, no others. Perhaps it is a peculiarity with American strains. Take care, Eric
Eric, the Paphs you have seen, would they have been flowered under natural light conditions or under lights ??? From limited experience here, I have found that forcing complex paphs to grow or flower by unnatural methods can cause many abnormalities. It doesn't seem to occur which other paph families or as much.
