Interesting to know. It was the only one without a tag; just a verbal telling me it was Paph. philippinensis crossed with another species with long spiral petals that she thought was Paph. sanderianum. Whatever it turns out to be, it has lines running the length of the leaves, just like the Paph. sanderianum. How obvious would it be if not that cross? Also, how would an average Paph. sanderianum or Paph. rothschildianum look, and what is considered a good one?Yes, as some philipinensis can be small. Though I wonder if this is really MK. Maybe st swithin or phillip x something else?
I would have expected the ones from the named cross to be worth more than one with only the species on the tag, with no mention of the parentage. I still don't get why some Paphs. tend to be pricey, but I really don't know much about paphs. I was never too taken with them, but a free orchid is still a deal. I would just like to see them bloom once.the sandy may be worth a couple hundred.
oke: What are the paphs you folks refer to as 'bulldogs'?
