Wilheminae is such a good species to downsize the plant to manageable foot print while also darkening the flowers. These are nice and dark.

The flowers are really neat and eye catching. I suppose I would prefer to see 3 or 4 flowers on the spike, but I know that's hard to get considering the parentage.

Thanks all!

I would hope for more blooms as it gets larger, but I'm not familiar with this little one, so I don't know how many to expect per spike. It's cute but compact. I thought the petals might have more of a twist based on some other ones I've seen, but this has about a half twist at the most.

Now I need to go look up Paph. William Ambler.

Thanks for posting. I have a couple of seedlings of this cross. Nice to see what I am waiting for.
