I'm pretty sure this cross is still unnamed. It's a first-bloom seedling and it bloomed out a bit wonky, but I think it has potential as a nice small "teacup" complex Parvi.

I find it interesting how the parents manifest themselves in this individual. For example, delenatii absolutely dominates the staminode shape while malipoense provides a clean dorsal and dictates pigmentation on the lower part of the staminode. Paph. micranthum adds some pink blush to the petals and contributed a bit to pouch shape and petal veination.

The cross sounds like something coming out of Orchid-Inn?
Imagine what the next bloom would be like, it must be very very nice from the way the color is now.

This is one of those crosses that is going to have a wide range of colors. My friend in Japan named a parvi after himself called Paph. Kenji Tsutsumi, which is Norito Hasegawa x Magic Lantern. With 25% of delenatii, armeniacum, micranthum and malipoense, the colors were off the scale from pure white to deep pinks to muddy browns. It was an awesome cross and since I have both parents blooming now maybe I'll try to re-make it!

would be neat to swap Lola Bird for the Magic Lantern and get some emersonii in it

I also have one of those. To my surprise mine produced a bud. Just as it was nice and fat I found it off of the plant. I can only assume that when I watered it the pressure from the hoseI knocked it off. I appreciate that you shared with us. I'll need to wait for a new growth which maybe a couple of years. I'm not sure but I may have one more of the cross hiding on me. When it blooms I'll be sure to share it with you guys.
