    Apart from the colour break it is just wonderful.

    Alexej is a wonderful hybrid. Thanks for showing it to us. Hopefully, the next time there won't be any color break.

    Nice anyway. Not easy to grow to blooming size. Thanks for sharing.

    It's a really beautiful hybrid. I don't think I'd ever own one because I definitely prefer stuff that blooms in my conditions. Damn those roth x parvies, gorgeous but no the most floriferous things. BTW, is this hybrid fragrant? Given that both of the parents are fragrant, it wouldn't surprise me if some of the offspring are too.

    Please post an update photo sometime: Paph. Alexej is semi-famous for asymmetrical twisting of the petals. Thanks.

    Here is the whole plant. I cut the flower. It didnt twist at all - some longitudinal furling only.
