    The cross is Mem.Hirohisa Kawaii x micranthum.
    The brachy parent has 75% bellatulum and equal shots of godefroyae and niveum (Greyi).

    I have posted this plant in the past. Probably more than once. It is such a willing bloomer.
    This is its fourth time blooming since early 2016 when I got it as a single growth plant.
    It has now three leading fans, one in bloom, two others in sheath. :)
    I like this one because the flower looks very much like micranthum and I don't have much luck blooming micranthum. This is the next closest thing to have around as well as my Magic Lantern which are about to open up. Yay!!

    This time, the red color has some purple tone to it. Not the best lighting so the photo shows the flower rather dull. Sorry about that. Also, there is some color issues on the pouch for the first time. Oh, well..can't be perfect.

    The first shot was too dark and sad, so I made it a bit brighter. The color is hard to capture. It is very dark pink with some purple to it. Gotta see it in person! haha

    Nice looks a lot like Paph Kevin Porter but apparently easy to bloom. Thanks for sharing.
