    I just got back from a business trip and a flower I had been impatiently awaiting had fully opened.
    This is paph (anitum x philippinense) x rothschildianum that I snagged off ebay a couple weeks ago. Sorry for the bad pics, I'm just thrilled how it turned out and wanted to share. I'll try to snap some better ones if it ever stops raining here.

    very nice dorsal and colour.
    Fairly short petals considering the species involved.

    First time to see an Yang-ji Apple with short petals. Most of them I have seen with petal with considerable length.

    Love it. Thought it resembled Paph Landmark when I first saw it. What a very nice pick-up.

    This isn't Yang-ji Apple. Paph Yang-ji Apple is one of the parents. You need to add roth to the mix.

    As Rick noted, it is Yang-ji Apple crossed with roth. But it will be interesting to see if the petals end up longer on the second flower as I wasn't able to keep it as moist as I would have if I had been in town while the first flower opened. I'll definitely make sure to get good photos when more of the flowers are open-the dorsal is stunning and very nicely vertical.

    The addition of roth will certainly shorten the petals. This is a beauty!
