Thanks, guys, you pretty much confirmed what I was thinking. It's no biggie because I always had my suspicions about this one and it was only about bucks. I'm still chuffed I got a slipper to spike and bloom.
Oh and Rob, worry not I already have at least a couple dozen more! It's just a matter of getting the suckers to (re)bloom now. I only started growing them in March and judging by the number of new growth I'm hoping for more flowers and excitement in the next year or two.
Its definitely charlesworthii x just about any Maudiae type, either hybrid or species...no sense in tearing your hair out over the cross, just enjoy it....Of course, if you paid big bucks (or pounds, as you're in the UK) for a callosum Jac, then you have every reason to be very mad......Take care, Eric
Paph. Rosita could be a possibility, even the leaves look similar to the pictures I saw but, yes, I'll never know for sure which is fine. The flower's gotten even bigger in the last couple of days, it's pretty much the size of my palm so at least I got a fair bit of bloom for my 8 pounds
