Proportionally, it is a bit out. The petals are very long relative to the rest of the flower. Never going to be awarded. But I still like it. It looks different. It is a unique looking roth. A keeper in my eyes.
 
Oh it's definitely a keeper. And a very beautiful roth. Just pointing out that for all the reasons cited above there are a few elements that would take it down a notch in the context of judging standards.
 
Beautiful roth! The narrowness doesn't bother me at all. Great color and good balance between the dorsal and synsepal. Congrats!
 
A nice little bessae I keep around. :)

This plant is in bloom 365 days a year. This is the 15th flower on the current inflorescence, and another spike is also starting.

Possibly the easiest plant to grow in my collection. It just sits in a shallow tray of water. Small plant. Non-climbing habit.

I really like it.

Did you go out of your way to get a non-climber, or did you get lucky?
Would love to see the whole plant!

This is extraordinary and the flower looks also great.
Final look at roth Charles E for the season.
Another lovely roth ... it's a pity in my eyes that their flower season is over in your greenhouse ... will miss these lovely flowers
 
Here is a first bloom Paph stonei 'TN Queen' x self. There are 3 open flowers, but there is a fourth bud that will open later.

I grew this from a 2cm plantlet out of flask18 YEARS AGO. There were many cultural bumps and bruises along the way, but I am happy to finally see it in bloom!

Great P. stonei, Justin ... and Kudos to you patience ... but I'm honest, I own few Paphs. too where I'm not so sure whether I will see them flowering in my lifetime. But hope dies last.

Love this flower.

Even more so….

Misery loves company on the ‘cultural bumps in the road’ comment…

So many times I’m blooming out a grex that I’ve had from flask or initial offering. Well after others have had 3 flowerings in their plants. All because of those bumps….

:).

Hi five to being human!!!! And willing to admit it….
