In-Charm Gold = Emerald x helenae
You can see different types of the same cross, complex x helenae, the first and the second one are very complex like, and the third one is very helenae like. All are not very large, but the first one is large in this cross, the DS is 6.5 cm.
Colors will become more and more yellow day by day.

They are all nice. The third looks more the the parent helenae, but I prefer the second one. Thanks

I think I'm partial to the first one. Thanks for posting how different they all are.

I find it interesting that the flowers have the aspect of a complex cross, but in reality the Paph helenae has strongly affected the shape and color. Paph Emerald is a near primary of Paph curtisii x Maudiae and evidently the albino version was used in this cross. Paph helenae seems to be quite dominant in breeding! If I didn't know the cross, I would have guessed Paph insigne as one parent.

I copied the parents name from InCharm's website, and you remind me that I made a mistake, the parent is not Emerald, it should be Emerald Magic, that's complex type, and that can explain why some of them are so complex like. Thanks!

Yes, that is something totally different! Paph Emerald Magic is a yellow/green complex hybrid (Paph San Francisco x Paph Jolly Green Gem). I was a bit surprised that Paph helenae could diminish Paph Emerald so much........

This makes much more sense, and the Paph helenae still has a drastic effect on size, shape and color. How much does it reduce the plant size?

The helenae reduce the plant size a lot, most are only 15~20 for their leaf span, few are larger for double size.
Here are three new plants, I love the first one most.







You can see the plant size from this photo.
