Blooming in 2019.
Very nice if it stays like this and the dorsal doesn't reflex in the usual callosum fashion. How long has it been open?
About 2 weeks.
that's a very one one!
Beautifull flower... one can only consent with Paphluvr: very good form!
That's a very good, almost perfect P. callosum. Congrats
Thanks for showing that beauty.
BTW what means sublaeve? I have one callosum sublaeve and by first sight I don't see too much difference...
callosum sublaeve has been called several things over the years but most recently it has been formally described as variety warneri . I'm wondering if in fact, this clone is the smaller variety of callosum? The typical or larger callosum has a twist to the dorsal tip that is hard to breed out.
Thanks Rick, I'll post some photos of mine soon.
First bloom on mine. Small plant 3” pot.
callosum var. sublaeve
I think the perspective is distorted
Actually, I don’t think it is. Taken with my phone and cropped by enlarging just a bit for closer up. Maybe because it’s the first bloom the flower is a bit more elongated. It was newly opened (about 5 Days) then.
must be the perspective
The flower hasn't opened completely and it may never open all the way on this blooming. Get it another week, maybe it will flatten out by then and you can photograph it straight on rather from the bottom of the pot.
No wonder, if you don't see much difference - var. sulbaleve was formerly also known as var. thailandense, due to the geographic origin of this variety, and, if my memory doesn't fail me completely, the only floral difference in comparison with the typical form is, that it has a markedly smaller flower size. (I'll look it up, when back home, and return with guiltridden amendments if I'm in the wrong!)
I doubt, if this isn't the typical form (look at the in toto-pic: the size of the flower compared to the plant, the outright fat petals, etc.) - but a damn brilliant exemplar of that form!
Kind regards, Jens
Here are two straight on. It’s been opened since 4/22.
Good color Southernbelle. You should of started your own thread instead of hijacking J GDK's!
Sorry about that... I've only been on Slipper Talk for a brief time and don't understand the system. Had no idea I was hijacking someone's thread. Can you private message me the protocol, somehow? Is that possible? Sounds like threads are competitive or something. I thought this was just sharing information.
