This plant has tried to die twice and hence looks pretty bad. But it has a new growth and it did flower. Currently sitting in the hospital area after some major surgery from erwinia on its last new growth. Anyhoo. Kinda nice. As long as you don’t look at the flowers head on. ;-)52E3E003-CBF7-46DE-917F-AD84BB1A2B06.jpeg 1549922B-3D3A-4785-9689-634ACC96747E.jpeg

4 flowers on a plant with such an intense 'anamnesis' is remarkable. Paph. Memoria Heinz Rengers (Paph. gigantifolium x Paph. supardii) is the cross we came across in this thread on search to the parentage of my mislabeled Paph. supardii. Good luck for the plant. 👍

I have a plant I got from Sam using this hybrid as one parent. The other is sanderianum and I'm expecting a Chiu Hua Dancer type of flower when it blooms.

Thanks for posting

Nice one, Rich. We hope for a speedy recovery!

And Rich's plant is an illustrative example of, why your plant isn't M. Heinz Rengers, Rudolf: it has the very light colouring of its ovary from gigantifolium and the anarcho-clownish petals (that triggers Ozpah's coulrophobia) from supardii!

Jens, you're absolutely right. Because of that I didn't take a photo of the ovary in my thread...not because I should have forgotten it.
