    This is the first of this cross to bloom. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I only have a few seedlings.

    That one turned out great!

    How long did it take from out of flask to this point??

    The capsule was harvested 6/22/2009, so I'm guessing I got the flask back sometime in 2011, which makes the time from deflasking to bloom about 5 years.

    A unique dorsal!
    But 5 years from flask to bloom is a long time.

    I've done several (henryanum x standard complex) crosses and the all have been slow bloomers for me. Maybe there's a flaw in my culture that these plants are more sensitive to, or maybe the henryanums that I have used were not as vigorous and fast growing as new generations.

    I don't have any experience with P. Sioux, but I've noticed that the progenies of 'vintage' complex hybrids can need more time to mature than the progenies of modern complex Paphs do.

    Nice; I like the pattern of spots on the dorsal as well as the color.
