I can’t say it is easy. It likes light more than other of my paphs, actually it receive last two hours of sun during summer time, temperature in the windowsill where it is placed does not go over 80F.

Beautiful....

Perfect storm of two multifloral albums. Best of both parents.

looks much the same as haynaldianum album.
Haynaldianum album actually has small flowers with thinner petals (not the spoon like petals of lowii inherited by this hybrid), on shorter spikes.

I see that, thanks.
It just strikes me as a fairly pointless hybrid, IMHO (in album form). It just doesnt seem an 'advance' in form, size, shape etc over its parents. The coloured form can be an improvement on the parents if strongly coloured and the 'paddles' display nicely.

Maybe the hybrid vigor makes it easier to grow and flower?

These are lovely and attracting flowers without any doubt.

To be honest I'm on Ozpaph's side. In my eyes it's very confusing crossing such closely related species. When I see these flowers I see P. lowii album, nothing else. So in my eyes a strictly line breeding would be the better way to go and avoid confusing and misunderstanding.
