I'm pleased to say that this is pretty much everything you'd hope for from this cross. Smaller plant size (leaves are much less wide, which does lead to a bit of "floppiness"), but the flowers are still good sized, with a good open stance and a good amount of color, tessellation, and chocolate chips! There's a bit more "ruffle" to the lateral petals than I'd prefer, but oh well. It's still a keeper!

I can take plant and bloom measurements if anybody would like to know.

Really interesting hybrid.
Could you give us the informations about the dimensisons of the plant and the flower.
I think this cross shows us an interesting way to the teacup-Paphs.

Best greetings

Ok!

It's in a 4.5" pot.
15" leafspan. Leaves 3.3cm wide.

N.S. horozontal: 11cm; vertical: 9.3cm.
Dorsal: 5cm x 5.5cm.
Pouch: 2.8cm x 4.8cm.
Petals: 3.1cm x 6.3cm.


It's right next to a standard complex (which I will take a picture of soon) that has a leafspan of up to 22", and a smaller flower (it would be larger – but only slightly – if it opened more).
