It is a selfing of the famous laevigatum clone, “red ruby”, and I have the parent plant too. The difference is mainly on petal stance and length: the parent can produce longer, flatter petal.Wow, that contrast of color is outstanding. Overall, it is special. So this is a self of Red Ruby? I would like to know where I can get its siblings for my Phil project.
this is nice enough to chase a little ;-).....
There are many selfing plants for red ruby selling in Taiwan. ..... There is another good crossing “red dragon” x “red ruby”, and it is not difficult to obtain in Taiwan. ...... if you have sources for buying paphs in Taiwan.
Nothing more to say ..... just WOWWonderful phili! Certainly not ordinary - quite the opposite: that colouring can only be described as extrordinay. It's, actually, the phili I've seen, that I liked the most! Clonal name of the parent very apt, as this is a gem, indeed!
That’s true. However, I have heard that “red ruby” is a forest plant so that if it is really a selfing of it, the genie of such clone should be a pure laevigatum.Excellent!
Seems like I remember someone on ST saying that pure forms of Roebellini and other varieties are getting hard to get because they have been crossed so much?
