I bought this plant as Paphiopedilum acmodontum x sib. But it seems to me that this is Shirley Amundson (acmodontum x hookerae) Am I right? I have another SA, that I like a lot and it is very long lasting. Thanks for your comments.

I hadn't bothered to read your comment and immediately opened your photos. I think your suspicions are correct as that was the first thing I thought when I looked at your photos, "looks like acmodontum x hookerae", but of coarse you'll never know for sure. It just doesn't look like pure acmodontum to me, just my opinion.
