    Flask are available now and he had a flask of rung x niveum. That would be interesting. Probably will look similar to fairreanum x niveum which I like.

    So many interesting choices, but fairrieanum first.

    Will they become diluted? Nevertheless its to avoid smearing out the alredy saturated colors the outcome will likely be brownish.

    Are they niveum crosses in that pic? Looks quite well developed?

    The pic is rungsuriyanum x sib I think.. (5 per bottle). I guess that happens when you have few plants in one flask rather than crowded? Less competition on nutrients so they grow big in flask?

    He posted a bunch. Personally I'm drooling on the vietnamense flask and josianae x self :drool:

    I would try something like crossing it with Paph hookerae, it would retain the petal color and give a taller stem.

    Interesting, got some josianae from him some time ago, seedlings. They grow well and I am looking forward to see the outcome of those. So rung is in flask, what about the cousin, there seems not to be any success so far?

    Thaianum I think. VENUSTUm would be more interesting but it's already weird enough. In a good way though.

    The plants are kind of available. They are unfortunately not legal in the USA. Niveum was my choice because it grows quickly and most of it's hybrids are attractive.

    Would love to cross it with Paph. mastersianum and Paph. hookerae, would not hesitate one minute.

    I seem to be in a minority here, but I'd always start with rothschildianum - it has such a great track record for primary hybrids, and I think the great dorsal and petal striping on rungsuriyanum would carry through - maybe like a dollgoldi in shape though. Second choice would be the wildcard of gigantifolium, though I fear it might result in a lovely coloured but shapeless bloom. Knockout if it keeps the gig sickle petals though!

    Was there any left in the wild after this collection? It would be a good idea to collect a handfull of good ones then breed them instead of pulling up multiple full colonies
