    Cool, this is the first time I've seen this species in bloom since it's description!

    I think it's the third time it blooms. It's from Orchid Limited some years ago.

    I do not have one of these and I've never seen any in person, but the flower is remarkably similar to a bunch of kolopackingii x stonei I've bloomed. The petals on those are a little greener and not as erect, but the pouch and dorsal are about the same. However, I have no reason to doubt Orchid Limited's ID on this plant. Mike

    Yes, it's exactly what we could wait from that kind of cross. However, if you cross two platyphyllum and get exactly the same plants (and all the plants I've seen are similar) it can't be F2 hybrid (F1 x F1).

    I have selfed the plant and got seedlings, It should take 4 to 5 years to see the first blooming and see if they are similar to the mother plant.
