Congrats? Yah doesn’t seem to be FS. I think PK was used, but not bessae. Maybe MDC (something makes me want to say there is sargentianum in the background).
I get PK is Phragmipedium Kovachii, but please type out MDC for us beginners around here!

Since I grow mostly Phrag. besseae hybrids All the common parents are abbreviated: MDC, SG = Sunset Glow, HP = Hannne Popow, EY = Eric Young, etc.

Slipper Orchid Info has photos of first and second generation Slipper orchids.
Thanks. I have used that site to add to my wishlist in the past. I checked out that site recently and FS does not look like “mine.” Secondary hybrids do not match exactly either. I am satisfied calling mine a ‘FS maybe possible hybrid unknown’.

A second flower opened on this Fritz Schromberg and the Flower has a more classic appearance in my opinion. Fascinating to me how the same plant can have two vastly different looking flowers
