    The first flower is fabulous. Must have gotten some colour from the leuco parent.

    Not what I expect to see at all, but I'm really glad I did.
    The pouch contrast is amazing.

    Very nice cross. I like the top one best; but, the other clone is really eye catching as well.

    That turned out way better than I was thinking it would. Very nice outcome.

    I wish there were. I only have six or so survivors from a poor initial germination. Eventually I might sell some after blooming them, and with luck, a division or two might be available in a few years. Also, I will try remaking the original cross or something similar using another charlesworthii X complex parent in the future .

    Ohh Ross, that's fantastic! What a wonderful flower!
    What is the size of the flower? Is it a compact grower?

    First one is amazing, but I also like the 3rd one a lot.

    It's relatively compact. I will give you measurements, tomorrow, when I get out to the greenhouse.

    After seeing the results using this Paph [charlesworthii x Mem George A Benedict) in different crosses, it seems to allow colors and patterns to come through from the other parent.
