finally opened today after such a long wait ( 6 months+ since I first noticed a spike forming) :rolleyes:





Looks like armeniacum is quite dominant in this cross, at least colorwise, except for the pouch.... Flower is very big compared to the plant : 10 cm high, 10 cm across....

Looks like the first step toward truely peach colored Paphs. Yellow Orange and orange red are not common colors in Paphs.
Cool.

I LIKE! Can you post a picture of the whole plant?
here you go, under artificial light, which makes the flower looks more peach color than it really is..it's a single growth plant, LS about 25 cm

It's interesting that vietnamense does not have the yellow color suppressing trait that delenatii has.
I was thinking the same thing. Armeni White (arm x del) is the perfect example too.

I think the yellow is the dominate colour in all paph armeniacum x (delanatii, micranthum, etc.) ...The yellow is still dominate here but for some reason it leaves a few hints of pink:)
