I just got confirmation on the name from the RHS. The cross is barbigerum x charlesworthii. I received permission from the originator of the cross to name it. It is a good name because the plant is little trouble to grow. Posing with the plant is one of our cats, Trouble.

I wanted to make the cross if it hadn't been done yet, probably still will someday on account that your picture's proof it's pretty and easy to grow! :)And the furry Trouble's cute too!

That's a well grown and flowered plant Ross.

The flowers look allot like Paph cocineanum (barbigerum var lockianum)

Can we get a closer pic?

Thanks for all the kind comments. This plant virtually grows itself compared to most Paphs. I have three seedlings from this cross, but the other two are slackers and only have three growths each in bud or bloom. I think the strong clumping tendencies of both species combined with natural hybrid vigor has combined to make this kind of fast growth and multiple blooms possible. Any comments on this?
