Through a series of fortuitous events I inherited this plant from my best friend who got it from another of my best friend, who originally bought as a Paph. henryanum!

When it first bloomed, it was clearly not as such.

Based on pictorial analysis and literature comparison, it is clearly a coccineum (ddx sulivongii, lockianum and vejvarutianum).

The first clue was the stained beet purple blotch on the hooked white dorsal sepal. Staminode fits the species as the second clue. Then plant morphology including non-bilobed leaves (thanks Fred) in the final clue.

Just opened day 2, so will still expand. Will update pics in a week.

Plant is also finally multigrowth.

Culture: bright light, hot summers, intermediate winters, water regularly, no rest.

NS 8 cm
DS 3 cm wide
