Not the best spike length so petals are not hanging away from foliage. Plant in fair shape after dropping multiple times but has a new growth.
3 flowers.
Faan Kruger ‘Golden Stretch’ x sanderanium ‘Dark Spider’
(Not sure which if I use ‘xxx ‘or “xxx “ to be correct).
Faan Kruger is Deena Nicol x sanderanium
(Deena Nicol is philip x glanduliferum)

Very Michael Koopowitz looking but lighter colored for the upper half. Nicely colored petals and long. I like the outcome.

So if the Deena Nicol truly is Deena Nicol, meaning philie by praestans then that would by far explain the light/ yellow tones to the flowers. Paph wilhelmenae/ gardneri would pass on dark tones.
BTW, wilhelmenae x philie is registered as Harbringer's Dark Ages which I currently have blooming but not ready to post yet.
