say more about "this one won't be staying."

looks like 3 flowers, and still opening the first...

and first bloom?

It is smaller than the sibling, muddy color, hooded, pinched dorsal, overall just an inferior flower looking at them side by side. I'm not particularly interested in breeding with this cross so I'm content to have one good example in my collection and not have lesser plants taking up space in hopes of future improvement.

Aha. Expand the photo and those characteristics are evident. :)

It's exciting. This is my second FCC but my first on a Paph and completely unexpected.
I think I saw you showing your plant on AOS Facebook page! Congrats again, the yellow-black striping on the dorsal is really pretty

All three flowers open on 'Gold Dynasty' x 'Giant Wings'. The judges passed on this one but did say they would like to see it again when it is more mature.

'Black Bird' x 'Mont Milais', hoping the pouch color evens out in the future but overall I like this flower.

Two 'Giant Wings Jr' x 'X-Hot' on their way.
