Here is a first bloom of Paph. De Nachtwacht. It is a cross between a vini Maudiae type (Paph. Voodoo McNay) and Paph. rothschildianum. It turned out very dark in color. I first wanted to name it after the Dutch Painter Rembrandt, who always used dark colors in his paintings, but that name was already taken, so I named it after one of his most famous paintings: "De Nachtwacht" which means " The Night Watch".

Yes it is an almost "black" flower, usually I always take the pictures with a black background, but you could not see the flower anymore, so I took it with a white background, and with photoshop made the background blue.

Here is a picture of the whole plant (sorry it has the black background). It inherited the mottled foliage of it's Maudiae-type parent.
