I purchased a compote of plants labeled Paph. acmodontum a year and a half ago. This is the first to bloom (of course it is the one I gave to a friend)DSCF8367.JPGDSCF8369.JPG, and it is WAY not acmodontum. Can anyone hazard a guess? It really is quite nice. The leaves are mid-green, slightly tessellated, and the flower stem sits at about a foot tall at present.

I have another plant pushing a flower stem--maybe open in a couple of weeks. Plus three others that just stare at me. "SIGH"

It shows affinities with Paph. lowii but I am not sure about the other parent(s). I would inform the grower you bought the compot from and ask him what he thinks it could be.

Check with the vendor! They may have an idea. it’s a nice thing and very vigorous if it’s flowering a year and a half out of compot!

I did dig out the original tags today. There is a broken off one that says ocmodonum 'Pomglo', and a newer one that adds Paph at the front. I am doubtful that the vendor would be any help

Shariea... Can you retake pics of matured flowers as I think the bloom you showed is just opening. Also pic of the staminode will help too.

I had to use flash, as Esther's grow space is shaded in the morning. Also--The last 2 pictures are off my plant that is close to flowering, as the leaves on Esther's blooming plant look yellowy. I did my best, but my camara is old and doesn't do good close shots.
